Why enrol with Tend?

Why enrol with Tend?

Enrolling with Tend ensures you can access cheaper appointments for adults, free appointments for children under 14, and discounts for Community Service Card holders.

If you have ongoing condition(s) and medication needs, it's best that you enrol with Tend so we can provide ongoing care and repeat prescriptions.

Everyone who enrols with Tend gets their first appointment free, and repeat prescriptions are free (normal prescribing regulations apply). You can also access subsidised medical services when you enrol with us.

Why is enrolling cheaper?

In NZ, GPs receive government funding for enrolled patients, so appointments are cheaper (and children under 14 are free) where you're enrolled. You can only be enrolled with one GP at a time.

You can enrol yourself but not your children, or the other way around, it's up to you. Adult family members must have their own Tend account and enrol themselves (except where you have Power of Attorney over someone's care).
