As specialists in rural general medical practice our doctors are able to assist you with a wide range of health concerns.
There is a doctor available after hours every day of the year.

Our doctors and nurses have specialised interest areas.

Accidents & Emergencies
Wanaka is in a relatively remote location. It is 5 hours by ambulance to Dunedin Hospital and 1 hour to Dunstan Hospital in Clyde, which is a small rural hospital. As a consequence, the practice is well equipped for all medical emergencies. All our permanent clinical staff have been trained in PRIME – Primary Response In Medical Emergencies.
In emergencies we liaise closely with hospital staff, ambulance and helicopter retrieval agencies.
We have considerable experience in minor trauma, fracture management and injury care.
