Welcome to GP Services

The Tararua Health Group provides GP practice based services from a number of sites across the Tararua Region.

Our model of care within our GP practices is a team-based approach where you may be seen by nurses, a nurse practitioner or a GP.

When you phone us our receptionists are able to assist you and arrange appointments for any of our sites or services. Please inform the receptionist which doctor you wish to see and at which location.

There may be waiting times to see your regular doctor so it is a good idea to book your regular appointment at least two - three weeks in advance.

If you are acutely unwell then our Dannevirke and Pahiatua practices offer acute appointments throughout the day. Please call us and we can arrange appropriately.

Our practices are happy to accept new patients. When transferring from another practice we encourage you to transfer your old records, it is not compulsory to do so but it may assist your new doctor to know your medical history.

Our reception staff will provide you with the appropriate form if you wish to join us. If you are not enrolled with the practice you are considered a 'casual' patient and the cost is more expensive for you.
