Please note that we do not provide free after-hours medical care for accident and emergencies. The nearest free accident and emergency clinic is at Whangarei Hospital. Dargaville Medical Centre also provides General Practitioner services to Dargaville Hospital, and the same GP fees apply whether you present at the hospital or the medical centre. Fees are expensive for after-hours care as they involve calling a doctor out from home. We strongly advise where possible that you see a doctor during the day.

We are open from 9 - 12 public holidays.

The Ruawai clinic is open from 8 am to 12 noon weekdays. We strongly suggest that you make appointments for this clinic. To enquire about a booking, please contact us.

Public Holidays: Open on all public holidays.
