Emergencies

Due to unexpected emergencies, delays are sometimes inevitable and we would ask for your tolerance and understanding in these circumstances. You may wish to ring the receptionist before coming in to check on the waiting time. However, if your problem is urgent, please let the receptionist know and we will try to fit you in.

With each visit please ensure that you bring with you your Community Services Card, ACC number and High User Health Card so that you can receive the subsidies you are entitled to.

We would encourage all patients who can afford to obtain Medical Insurance to do so

Emergency Department

Taupo Health Centre operates an emergency department which operates 8am to 5pm during normal week days.

This service is available to those who need to be seen on the day but no Doctors appointments are available.

People are seen in order of emergency not by what order they have come into the surgery. Accidents and Acutely ill patients are seen first.

Reception staff will book you into the emergency appointment book. You will then be seen and possibly examined by a nurse who will determine whether you need to be seen by the emergency Doctor. If the area is busy and your complaint is not of an urgent nature the nurse will make an appointment for you to be seen by your registered Doctor at another time.
Normal hours - 8.00am to 5.30pm
After Hours - If you need urgent Medical Attention outside of hours please ring - (07) 378 7060
Waiting Times - Due to unexpected emergencies, delays are sometimes inevitable and we would ask for your tolerance and understanding in these circumstances.
