Barraud Street Health Centre provides care to our patients with a team of doctors and nurses working together in what we call 'pods'.

Barraud Street Health Centre is part of the Tararua Health Group. Our vision is to provide “rural healthcare at its best"

Our GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are undertaking specialist training in general practice.They are able to offer patient consultations and are supervised by our senior GP's. The GP Registrars bring a variety of experience, many have previously been senior doctors in other specialties such as radiology or General Medicine. We see their input as extremely valuable to our practice.

Acute appointments are available if you are suddenly unwell. Please call our receptionist and they will be able to help you. The acute appointments are only available for urgent problems – If your condition is not urgent please book an ordinary appointment instead.

If you present at the health centre with an acute problem you may be triaged by our nurses who will access what further care you may require.


Our permanent doctors and Nurse Practitioners, are supported by Registered Nurses, Registrars (GP's in training), locums (both short and long term), medical students and student nurses.
