Caring for bariatric clients, together

Caring for bariatric clients often presents complex health challenges. With 1.5 million New Zealanders now classed as obese, today's health professionals and organisations need to understand how best to support the unique requirements of larger people.

We believe by working together with health professionals, carers and whanau, we can make person-centered bariatric care a reality for more New Zealanders. To that end, our clinical team has put together some tools and resources below that we hope you enjoy using. 

If you need help finding a bariatric solution for your client or organisation, please contact our experienced team and we'll be in touch.
