A new way of working, for a healthier you!

The way we do things has changed with phone

When you phone us to make an appointment, you will be asked to declare if you have had any of the following symptoms - cough, runny nose, sore throat, chest congestion, ear ache, headache, diarrhea, vomiting or conjunctivitis.

Click here to go to the Ministry of Health website and read more about symptoms of COVID-19 and testing criteria.

Please don't be afraid to say yes to having any of these symptoms. If you are unwell and need to be seen by a doctor, you will be seen in our purpose-built, negative pressure room. Either a doctor or nurse will call you to assess your need to be seen face to face.

New Patients

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.
