Kia ora, are you studying or working at Wintec | Te Pūkenga?

Our on-campus Health Services are available to assist and support you with your physical and mental wellbeing.

Health Services are a nurse-led practice. This means that our nurses are specially trained to provide you with a high level of care.

When you make an appointment with us, you will speak to or have an appointment with a nurse who will assess your needs, provide health care and/or book your time with a doctor.

Learners/ākonga currently enrolled can register with us, meaning we will become your primary healthcare provider. Those registered then pay subsidised rates for doctor or nurse services. Upon completing your studies, you will need to transfer to another medical centre. Please talk to one of our reception teams if you have any queries.

Find out how to become a registered patient by popping into either the City or Rotokauri clinic or contacting us using the details below. We recommend registering before your first appointments we will have enough time to receive medical records from your previous medical clinic.
