How to make a Doctor's appointment

Contact us between 8.00 am and 5.00 pm or drop in to a Hutt City Health Centre and talk to our Receptionist. We do have a late night clinic until 8.00pm on Tuesdays in Lower Hutt and a late night clinic until 8.00pm on Wednesdays in Wainuiomata.

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.

Repeat prescriptions for enrolled patients

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.

After Hours Medical Care

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

Results usually arrive within a few days of being performed.

Repeat prescriptions for enrolled patients

Will you see test results?
In most cases we will not notify you of normal or marginally abnormal results unless they impact on your care. We will let you know if the results require further attention.

Contact us if you are unsure or to clarify other fees and charges.

Funded fees apply to:

  • Flu vaccination for pregnant women, anyone aged 65 years and over and anyone aged under 65 years with a medical condition that increases their risk of developing complication from the flu (conditions apply)
