Succession planning

Need a succession plan for your GP practice? We're designing and building a new kind of healthcare system for today's kind of living.

We imagine a future where our tamariki and whānau have access to world-class healthcare in Aotearoa, supported by a workforce that uses globally leading systems and technology.

Our vision is to build a better healthcare experience that provides accessible, equitable, and smart primary care, designed around your patients and their whānau.

We bring new technology and a distinctive model of care that has been designed to solve some of the pressures faced in the healthcare system by both clinicians and patients.  Healthcare anytime, anywhere and for everything you’d expect from your GP.  A model where all the dots in healthcare are connected, from routine check ups to specialist referrals. 

Elder patient using Tend

This all reduces the burden ensuring clinicians have the time to actually tend to patients and provide care that meets their needs.

We’re committed to addressing the inequities in access for Māori and underserved communities, such as LGBTQI+ and those living remotely, by providing care that is convenient and accessible through the Tend platform and in our clinics.

Tend has been built by Kiwis, for Kiwis.

Why partner with Tend?

Happy customers

Happy clinicians

Latest customer satisfaction results show 95% of patients felt their needs were met in their most recent consultation.

In our most recent workplace survey 97% of clinicians would recommend Tend as a great place to work.

Smarter and faster technology

Flexible hours and locations

Over 90% of Tend customers use the Tend app for managing their bookings, freeing up phone lines and administration.

Clinicians have the option to work from the convenience and comfort of their home or at one of our modern clinics.

Patients use the award-winning app to check their notes, order repeat prescriptions, receive their results and reminders and get notifications.

As of July 2022, 66% of appointments were done online, with 34% in-clinic.

Internally, clinicians use secure digital channels to chat to colleagues, share case notes and get support.

Flexible rosters have been designed to suit our clinician’s lifestyle. Weekend and late night shifts suit some clinicians who want better family balance.

More collaboration

More effective administration

Clinicians work as part of a care team, with workload shared best suited to skill sets.

Call volumes at our central Auckland clinic have reduced by over 80% since introducing the app.

Our clinicians and technology teams work together, collaborating and building technology that works for patients and clinicians alike.

Patients use the app to message the customer experience and care teams with reply times averaging 1 hour for an admin response and 10 hours for a clinical response.

It is important for us to partner with people that share our purpose of helping Kiwis become the healthiest people in the world. If this sounds like you, we welcome your expression of interest.
