We have an extensive team comprising registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and emergency medicine specialists. Here's a quick reminder of some of the ways we're able to support you using our trusted telehealth platform and skilled online workforce...

  • RN on-call service
  • Short-notice staff cover
  • Verification prior to hospital transfer

New Zealand is currently in the grip of the highest COVID-19 peak since December 2022. If staff and resident sickness is impacting the smooth running of your facility we urge you to consider a hybrid model. Marrying hands-on care with telehealth enables around-the-clock support and enhanced care.

We have compassionate Registered Nurses (RNs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs) online to support your staff and residents. And our system enables easy escalation to emergency doctors who are also online 24-hours.

We place huge value on your on-site healthcare team. Together we can implement a collaborative care model where any gaps are filled quickly and competently so that quality care is delivered all the time, every time.
