Primary Healthcare Service

8:30 AM to 5:30 PM.

Description

We strive to provide an excellent health care service to the community of Central Southland. 

Current out-of-hours arrangements involve a cooperative with the Invercargill city doctors, operated from an out-of-hours clinic in the city. Winton enjoys the benefits of-having a base hospital nearby at Invercargill. 

The practice services a small rest home, and serves as a teaching practice for Otago University medical students, GP Registrar and Nursing Students.

We also work in conjunction with District Nursing, Physiotherapy, and Podiatrists located next door to our premises.
