Compass Health

Who are we?

Compass Health is a Primary Health Organisation (PHO) that provides a wide range of primary care services through 60 General Practice Teams and a number of other health care providers throughout the Wellington, Porirua, Kapiti and Wairarapa regions.

Compass Health Wellington Trust (formerly named the Greater Wellington Health Trust) was formed in 1997 to contract with District Health Boards and other funders to provide health services, and was managed by the Wellington Independent Practitioner's Association (WIPA, formed in 1995). Compass Health in its present state was formed in July 2010 by the merger of three existing PHOs: Capital PHO, Tumai Mo Te Iwi, and Kapiti PHO. Wairarapa PHO was then merged into Compass Health in 2012.

What do we do?

The PHO has contracts with health professionals and organisations in the community, such as General Practicioners and their wider General Practice Teams to help deliver quality health services to you.
The majority of service provision in the Compass Health Primary Health Organisation (PHO) is completed through our contracted network of General Practice providers. In New Zealand, General Practice will generally be your first point of contact with the health system. General Practice Teams will include General Practitioners, Practice Nurses and sometimes other health professionals working together to improve, maintain, restore and co-ordinate people's health care. General Practice Teams focus on patient needs and enhancing a network among local communities and other health and non-health agencies.

The Compass Health PHO is also responsible for a number of services in the region that are not based in any specific health centre or practice.
