Rapid Response Clinics – sore throat checks

Porirua parents can get their children’s sore throats checked and treated at any time throughout the year, free of charge and without an appointment.

An untreated sore throat can lead to rheumatic fever – which can cause heart damage.

If your child has a sore throat it is important to have it checked at a clinic, contact your family doctor or call the Healthline on Ph 0800-611-116 to speak to a registered nurse for free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
