If someone has chest pain, can't breathe easily, or is unconscious, call an ambulance - telephone "111", it's safer and faster than being driven to hospital in a private car.
If you need to see a doctor outside our working hours, try Shorecare at Smales Farm phone (09) 486 7777.
Shorecare has a pharmacy on-site open until 10pm, and there are x-ray facilities during the weekend.
Saturday Clinics are provided on an alternating basis with Devonport Family Medicine. This is a walk in clinic, no appointment is neccesary. Enrolled patients of both practices are offered care at enrolled prices.
We are a general practice aiming to provide quality healthcare to you and your family.

Our surgery is located very close to the supermarket carpark just back from the main shopping street in Devonport. The surgery is also 3 or 4 minutes walk from the ferry terminal.
Weekday consultations are by appointment only with a standard consultation time of 15 minutes.
On Saturday mornings we hold a "walk-in" clinic. There are a few phone appointments available. Otherwise it is run on a first come first served basis. This is an after-hours clinic for urgent things, not for routine check-ups or medicals.
Our team is made up of 3 GPs (see details below under “General Practitioners”) and:
Nursing Staff: Fiona Murray, Jo Barker, Kate Theunissen.
Receptionists: Melanie Iremonger, Jacquie Sharpe, Robyn Millar, Kartini Joseph and Judith Walker.
Practice Manager: Kartini Joseph
