Those who are enrolled with us, save money on consultation fees and prescription costs.

International students can also register and the cost of most services will be covered by your insurance.

If you aren’t enrolled with us or you are enrolled at another clinic you may be directed back to your usual doctor or to the closest accident and medical (A&M) clinic.  

How to make an appointment

The quickest way to make an appointment is by phone. You can also visit the centre in person but this may take longer as there may be queues. When visiting in person or when calling in for your appointment, you must present your Student ID card.

Gardasil vaccination

The gardasil vaccination is now avaliable for all female and male students who are New Zealand residents or citizens under the age of 27.

The gardasil vaccination is the best way to help protect against human papillomavirus (HPV). The vaccine works by causing the body to produce its own protection (virus-fighting antibodies) against HPV. For more information on the virus and vaccine head to the New Zealand website.
