GP After Hours Service

After Hours GP Service is an urgent after hours healthcare service which operates from 6pm to 8am - 7 days per week.

Central Otago does not have an Emergency Department. In an emergency, please dial 111 and ask for an ambulance.  The nearest EDs are located at Dunedin Public Hospital or Lakes District Hospital in Frankton.


Accessing the GP After Hours Service (between 6pm and 8am)

If you need to access URGENT healthcare please call Healthline on 0800 611 116.

The phone triage service will take your details and if appropriate make arrangements for you to be seen by the After Hours GP service.
