Piki Te Ora Health Centre
Piki Te Ora is provided by Piki Te Ora Health Centre Trust. It was formerly known as Union and Community Health Centre (UCHC), until November 2022 when the charitable trust was formed and then purchased the facility at 201 Linwood Avenue.
It is a primary health care service which was established in 1989 by a group of Trade Unions, who saw the need for greater affordability and accessibility to primary health care for ordinary working New Zealanders.
The continued vision and sense of social justice of these founding members enabled UCHC to alter its constitution in the mid 1990’s, so that an increasingly diverse range of people were able to access the service.
The new charitable trust continues the mahi of the founding members by providing affordable and accessible primary health care to the local whanau and community.
At Piki Te Ora we have a team of qualified health professionals to assist you with all your health needs. We also partner with other likeminded health providers who provide additional health services – podiatrist, physiotherapist, health coach and health improvement practitioner.

We have a board of 6 people made up of union members, Māori representatives, staff and community representatives. This board provides guidance to our centre and board members are elected each year at our annual general meeting in October.
Te Tiriti O Waitangi
Piki Te Ora actively honours the unique partnership between The Crown and the Tangata Whenua. We believe all people in New Zealand benefit when Māori and Pakeha work together to enhance Māori health, education and economic status.
We are a Cornerstone Accredited practice – this is the highest marker of Excellence in General Practice.
We are a member of Pegasus Health.
