Well Child/Tamariki Ora Checks
Your child is entitled to 8 free health visits under the Government’s Well Child / Tamariki Ora service
and please note that the 8th visit is the B4 School check. These visits, along with other Well Child /
Tamariki Ora services, aim to give your child the best start in life by protecting against illness,
detecting problems early and providing support to you.
The checks are for your child from birth to four years of age and they take place at your home and at
our Well Child clinic.
We also hold clinics at Kokiri Pukeatua (Wainuiomata), Tui Glen School (Stokes Valley) and at the
Orongomai Marae Health Clinic (Upper Hutt).
