Our health services

Many, but not all, of our health services in North King Country are partly funded by contracts with Waikato District Health Board (Waikato DHB), or provided directly by the Waikato District Health Board through its provider arm, Health Waikato. The Midlands Health Network also plays a key role in funding and providing primary (general practice) services in our area.
