Our Services: Arthritis Assist

Arthritis Assist – streamlining client support services

Arthritis Assist is an integrated client support service that provides links for people to get clinical advice, speak to a peer support volunteer, find resources on social media or request information about a form of arthritis and how to manage it. It is a new concept aimed at helping people with all types of queries and support, not only one-on-one phone clinics.

Arthritis New Zealand abides by the Health and Disability Commissions Code of Consumer Rights. Read more
