The Chatham Islands/ Rekohu or Wharekauri are an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean about 800 kilometres east of the South Island of New Zealand. The archipelago consists of about ten islands within an approximate 60 kilometre radius – the largest of which are Chatham Island and Pitt Island. The islands have a population of 600 people, with 59 percent identifying as Māori or Moriori.
The Canterbury District Health Board took over responsibility for health services on the Chatham Islands from 1st June 2016.
