The New Zealand Primary Healthcare Awards | He Tohu Mauri Ora 

2022 awards postponed


As Omicron approaches New Zealand, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the awards until later in the year.

Primary care is playing a central role in New Zealand’s response to COVID-19, and the hits just keep coming. It’s simply not the best time to distract from primary care’s critical work, or to bring the sector together for a large celebration.

All entries and nominations are suspended and the 7 May awards gala is postponed, for now. When things have settled down, we will bring back the awards.

Thank you for continuing to support the New Zealand Primary Healthcare Awards in such uncertain times and kia kaha.

He Tohu Mauri Ora 

Mauri Mahi, Mauri Ora 

Through the work you are all doing, our whānau, our community and our nation prosper. 


Supporting the primary care sector 

A strong primary care sector is crucial to a successful New Zealand health system, providing great care for patients and a great work environment.   

The Health Media and the Pharmacy Guild of New Zealand believe the awards will encourage collaboration and innovation in primary care, and allow the healthcare sector and the public to see how hard primary care practitioners work to improve the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders and keep them out of the secondary care (hospital) system.  

The collective aim is to improve access, health and wellbeing outcomes for Māori and non-Māori alike, and the awards celebrate the work that is already happening to encourage further collaboration.  

Awards gala dinner 

The night will celebrate and showcase the best of the best across primary healthcare in Aotearoa. It’s the perfect opportunity to socialise and network with your colleagues across the primary healthcare sector.

Awards sponsors 

Sponsorships are still available. Join us and show your organisation’s support for the primary care sector.
