Northland carver Poutama Hetaraka (Ngātiwai, Ngāi Tahu) kindly designed the Te Wāhi Tirohia Oranga Whēkau logo.
Translated, Te Wāhi Tirohia Oranga Whēkau means ‘looking inside for the wellbeing of your health’. The shape of the logo and the circle with lens glare symbolises the scope which is used in the service of Endoscopy.
The koru is a spiral shape symbolising new life, growth and strength. The inner circle features the district health board’s decorative motif and provides a link to our organisational values which are at the centre of everything that we do.
