Rheumatic fever throat clinics

Some descriptionIf your child complains of a sore throat, get it checked straight away. A sore throat can lead to Rheumatic fever if it’s left untreated, which is very serious and causes heart damage.

The Fono has throat clinics at our West and West Central clinics. A throat check is simple and FREE for Pacific and Maori children aged 4 and over. No appointments necessary.

We also provide individual family or community education sessions on Rheumatic fever that can be booked by self-referral or as a community session with a community group.
