Waikohu Health Centre


We are one of the few places in New Zealand where registered adult patients can be seen for free.

Patients who qualify for free care live in the area commonly known as Waipaoa, or Waikohu Ward: from the Gisborne side of the Kaitaratahi Bridge, across to the top end of Lavenham Rd, and out to Whatatutu, Motu and Matawai.

An after hours service provided by Three Rivers Medical Centre.
