We also host physiotherapy services, Plunket clinics, a social worker, clinical pharmacist, and provide a district-wide falls prevention service.
Our surgery is located at 1/157 Kiripaka Road, Tikipunga, Whangarei.
Our team is made up of 4 GPs (see details below under General Practitioners) along with two Practice Nurses, an Enrolled Nurse, a Plunket Nurse, Physiotherapist, a Health Improvement Practitioner, a Health Coach and a Social Worker.
We are also a teaching practice, meaning that from time to time we may have a PGY2 (2nd Yr Doctor), a GP Registrar (training to specialise in General Practice), and/or medical/nursing students based with us.
