Doctors, practice nurses and pharmacists are examples of primary healthcare providers.

They are generally the first person you see for medical help. When you are referred to a hospital or specialist, this is called secondary care.

Nelson Marlborough Health funds two primary health organisations that oversee primary healthcare in our regions: Kimi Hauora Wairau Marlborough Primary Health Organisation and Nelson Bays Primary Health.
