Your appointment will last for 15 minutes unless you request longer when you book - there will be an additional fee. Our charges are very reasonable and you'll need to pay for your Doctor's consultation at the time of your visit.
You may arrange to pick up a repeat prescription without seeing your Doctor first if you are an enrolled patient who has medications regularly prescribed. Please allow up to 3 days for repeat scripts to be issued. If you require an urgent script to be completed on the day there is an increased charge.
If you require medical attention outside of our normal hours we suggest you go to either the Lower Hutt After Hours Medical Centre, 729 High Street, Lower Hutt or ED at Hutt Hospital, High Street, Lower Hutt. More details
