A new way of working, for a healthier you!
We welcome new patients - whether you are new to Christchurch, or our side of town, or just want a change in doctor, we would be pleased to have you join our practice.
At Village Health we think continuity is extremely important and try to ensure you see your enrolled doctor for every visit. Please note that it may take up to 10 days to get your records transferred from your previous practice.
Please ensure you can provide identification upon enrolment (passport, birth certificate, drivers licence, kiwi access card).
For non-NZ residents, please ensure you have a passport and valid VISA with at least an 18 month expiry before completing the enrolment form. If you are enrolling online, you can attach a copy of this documentation, or drop it off to us here at the practice.

Flu vaccinations 2020
We have flu vaccines in stock! We are currently vaccinating all patients who wish to receive one over the age of 3 years old. Nationwide stock of flu vaccines are limited for under 3 year olds. We are ONLY able to administer these vaccines to children with certain health conditions. If you are unsure as to whether your child qualifies, please phone us to speak with a nurse.
Welcome to Village Health where our focus is you! Our team is made up of General Practitioners, Nurses, a Physiotherapist, Healthcare Assistant, a Dietitian and Receptionists who all work together as a team to look after you. We are now offering new ways to cater to your needs e.g phone consultations and online prescriptions that can be emailed directly to your preferred pharmacy, so you may not always need to see the doctor. We also offer other services such as Dietitian and Nurse led clinics for management of long term conditions.
We run a daily acute clinic for urgent concerns. These are very popular and tend to fill up quickly, so please call as soon as possible.
Late night clinics are currently suspended
The Manage My Health online booking function is currently suspended due to COVID-19. You can still order repeat prescriptions.
Village Health invests in Manage-My-Health, an IT tool which allows you to book appointments online, order repeat prescriptions, see your test results and message the team. Our Healthcare Assistant, will be available to help you sign up and get going.
Great staff make for a great experience for you and ultimately better health because you get the service and the treatment you need. We have doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, a dietitian and a fantastic admin and support team too. Read on for more information.
