The Doctors Tikipunga

Welcome to our practice

The Doctors Tikipunga are a long established general practice in Tikipunga and we are proud to provide our local community health care and advice. We have female and male doctors available, plenty of parking and wheelchair access. There are a number of languages spoken: Te Reo Maori, NZ Sign Language and English.  We are also proud to be Cornerstone Accredited.

COVID-19 Notice: in Alert Level 1 our consults are in person and through phone or video.

We’re providing our service in a new way to ensure you and your whanau remain safe. We're doing our part to support the COVID-19 response so when you phone us or visit the clinic we will ask if you have any cough, cold, or flu-like symptoms or if you're concerned about COVID-19 - let us know. This doesn't mean we think you have coronavirus, it's simply a small step we're taking to ensure we continue to keep our community safe and healthy.

Our practice is safe to visit

Safety is our priority. We are doing testing for COVID-19 and it's done in your car where possible or in an isolation room if an assessment is required.

This means when you visit us for other medical issues you won’t be exposed in any way. We have strict infection prevention standards in place, meaning staff are regularly wiping surfaces and keeping the practice clean and germ-free.

Thanks for your patience and continued support.
