Our aim is to provide the best possible care for you and your family and to achieve this we need to work in partnership with you.

Our doctors are all members of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practice, a body that represents a commitment to the maintenance of high professional standards and up to date medical skills in all aspects of general practice. They attend regular peer review sessions and run monthly in house training for staff.

Our nurses are highly skilled and experienced and are committed to the maintenance of high professional standards and up to date medical skills including resuscitation and suturing. They are also available to you by appointment.
