Dental services will be provided for emergency services and relief of pain following a phone call with our dentist.
Flu Vaccinations will operate as a drive-thru service, by appointment only. Please call first.
Hauora Pharmacy is open for collection of prescriptions and a delivery service for medications will operate until 2pm weekdays for those assessed as high risk.
Community Based Assessment Centre
This COVID19 assessment centre is not a drop-in centre and anyone who turns up without an appointment will be turned away.
When and how to use a community-based assessment centre:
1. People with COVID-19 symptoms should phone Healthline (0800 358 5453) or their GP first.
2. The Healthline advisor or GP will confirm if someone requires assessment and testing for COVID-19 at a CBAC
3. If the GP or Healthline think they need testing a CBAC team member will call them to make a time for them to come to the centre and be assessed.
4. If someone is unable to get to a CBAC the GP will make alternative arrangements.
Free GP - Hauora Heretaunga
TToH’s medical centre, Hauora Heretaunga, offers high-quality, low-cost medical and dental care for whānau, and an on-site pharmacy for your convenience.
Enrolled whānau can see a GP FREE until they turn 25. After that, it’s just $16.
At Hauora Heretaunga, we’re always looking for ways to make it easier for whānau to get the care and support you need -- when you need it.
From June 1 2019 there are no more walk-in queues for whānau wanting to see a GP urgently.
All you need to do is phone Hauora and ask for a call-back by your GP. Your GP will ask you some questions.
They might be able to give you all the help you need over the phone, and save you a trip to Hauora.
Or they will arrange for you to come and see them –or someone else in your medical care team.
This change is to help us ensure that whānau get to see the right person at the right time.
Please note: High demand means enrolments at Hauora Heretaunga are subject to availability.

Prescriptions - Ngā Rongoā
If you need ongoing medication, it is important that we monitor your progress. This means that you will usually need to see a doctor to get a prescription.
The only exception to that will be if your doctor agrees that you can phone in for repeat prescriptions. In that situation, you can phone our Reception staff and tell them:
It takes 24 hours for us to arrange a repeat prescription, and a charge of $10 will apply.
Test Results - Ngā Kitenga
When you have a test done, such as a blood test or x-ray, the results will be sent to your doctor. We will send you a letter or text, or phone you about the results.
If urgent follow-up is needed, we will contact you immediately.
If you require a chaperone or language support service, please let our Reception staff know.
