To achieve whānau, hapū and iwi well-being for Te Tau Ihu Māori
To deliver excellent health services through effective contract management, accessible, quality clinical practise, and that meet the expectations and requirements of stakeholders. Quality health services will empower and strengthen Māori to achieve a better quality of life.
THONR acknowledges the value of our customs and beliefs as handed down by our tūpuna. These taonga will be incorporated into the way we do things as a Health Provider with our Māori client whānau.
THONR believes that article two of Te Tiriti o Waitangi is paramount to its kaupapa. In practice, rangatiratanga translates to participation in the sector and in decision-making, planning, development and delivery of health services.
Manaakitanga is the care and awhi we give to others and ourselves that is nurtured within the kāinga and the workplace. As kaimahi, we extend this practice out to the community.
THONR also believe whānau and connectedness to whānau to be an integral component to individual wellness. The practice of whanaungatanga is key to service delivery.
As kaimahi, our wairua protects us by the strength and courage that comes from within us and enables us to call on the knowledge bestowed upon us.
THONR actively seeks to establish partnerships with clients, whānau, hapū, iwi, other organisations and agencies to ensure that it can achieve its goal of improving the health status of Māori in Marlborough.
THONR adopts a philosophy that emphasises client focus; a team based approach and ensure the theme “continuous improvement” is embedded within the culture of THONR.
THONR strives to achieve the highest standard in its management, governance and clinical practices. Standards are defined and outcomes are measured against the following dimensions:
- Relevance to need
- Cultural acceptability
THONR will intervene as early as possible in the continuum of primary health care and public health initiatives for the purpose of preventing chronic diseases, achieving wellness, and receiving timely diagnosis and effective treatment.
