appointments

Nurses work to appointments similar to the doctors and are not freely available all the time.  If you require more urgent attention, it is appreciated if you could call ahead if possible so suitable arrangements can be made.  Please contact our reception staff on 04 381 6161 to make an appointment.

If you have an emergency, please call 111.

nurses' fees

Many of nurses' services are free while others attract a fee.  Fees for nurse services are dependent on the type of service, material costs and time taken.

Some fees are discounted (and paid in addition to the doctor's fee) if you are receiving a nurse service as an extension to a consultation with your doctor (eg blood pressure measurements) or having a regular or repeated service.
