What’s in a name?

Plenty if it’s Whānau Ora

Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency chairwoman Merepeka Raukawa-Tait has hit back at George Ngatai who claimed legal action against his Auckland clinic that operates under the banner of Whānau Ora Community Clinic had been withdrawn.

On Wednesday, Ngatai and his wife Raewyn Bhana - directors of the Whānau Ora Community Clinic - issued a statement advising the commissioning agency had dropped its legal action against his clinic over its name.

“The Whānau Ora Community Clinic is delighted that Te Pou Matakana (Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency) has dropped the injunction application filed against us, and paid our costs,” the statement said.

“We have always thought it was misconceived to seek an injunction preventing us from using Whānau Ora in our name in connection with our work in the healthcare and wellbeing sector.”
