Acute care and services
The Doctors Te Whare Hāpara provides high quality continuous care to our valued patients. Maintaining a strong and continuous relationship with your health care team (doctors, nurses and administrators) ensures the best service and health outcomes for you. There are times when urgent care is required as a result of an accident or an acute need, The Doctors Te Whare Hāpara is available for immediate service when this need arises. However we are not in a position to see casual patients as we want to be able to provide the best care to our enrolled population.
Remember: for urgent emergency care after a serious accident or for health crises such as heart attacks, call an ambulance on 111, or go immediately to the hospital Accident and Emergency Department. We support the hospital in keeping the emergency department for emergencies only. If you think you need to see some one on the day please call in to the practice where you will be assessed by a new and booked for an appointment that day or the next available appointment according to your assessed need.
