The 2021 New Zealand Primary Healthcare Awards | He Tohu Mauri Ora awards night will be a glittering black-tie event at the Cordis Hotel on 15 May 2021. 

Time: Doors will open at 6pm, however we ask that finalists and judges arrive at 5.30pm to allow time for photos before the event. The three-course meal and ceremony are due to end at 10.15pm. The dance floor will then open until late. 

Attire:  The gala is a black-tie event, so think ball gowns and tuxedos... however, we want you to be comfortable, so if you would prefer to be in a cocktail dress or suit, we are sure you will look like a star. To get some inspiration see our gallery from the 2020 awards.


Health & safety: We ask that all guests drink responsibly and take appropriate transport at the end of the event. Intoxicated persons will be asked to leave.  

Transport: We recommend organising transport to the venue if you are not staying at the Cordis. There are several parking buildings nearby on Symonds street. 

Photos: Remember to share your photos on your preferred social media platform with #PrimaryStarsNZ.


The event will celebrate and showcase the best of the best across primary healthcare. 

Enjoy a night out with great entertainment and gourmet three-course dinner. Find out which teams and individuals have won the prestigious NZ Primary Healthcare Awards and mingle with some of New Zealand’s leading healthcare professionals and representatives from government, non-government, and private industry. 

It’ll be a real who’s who of NZ primary healthcare, and you don’t want to miss out!

2020 really limited our social and networking opportunities – so this will be a great two-in-one evening!
