The premises have recently relocated to a new purpose designed building that was a finalist in the 2020 NZ Designers Guild awards. There are eight consulting rooms, three observation rooms and a procedure room with a separate workspace for our GPs and Nurse Practitioners. There is also a separate respiratory area with high quality ventilation to ensure infection control. 

Your patient base will encompass a broad range of people across age groups, ethnicities, and socio-economic status. Maori and Pacifika peoples have a strong presence in this community and our client has good links with local Maori & Pacifika health agencies. This team is committed to improving the health outcomes for all. There is also a sizable South-east Asian community in this area, particularly those who have settled from the Philippines. Many Pasifika community people settle here from Samoa and Tonga.

  • Accommodation and a vehicle for your settling in period
