Christchurch Outpatients

Outpatients building now re-opened!

Due to a burst heating pipe and flooding in the new Christchurch Outpatient building on Friday 29 March most outpatient appointments were being postponed and rescheduled.

All services apart from Diabetes and Endocrine services and Ophthalmology [the Eye service] will be back in their usual locations in the Outpatients building this week [from Monday 15 April 2019]. 

  • People who have appointments with the Diabetes service are being seen in a different location. 
  • Some people with essential eye appointments are being seen in alternative locations, with a only a small number being seen in the Outpatients building from Monday. However, some eye appointments for this week have had to be rescheduled. 

People who have appointment letters or texts should continue to turn up to the location on the letter unless you have been contacted and advised otherwise.  If you’re not sure where to go please call the phone number on your appointment letter.

We apologise for the inconvenience this flood has caused. You can read more about the temporary closure of the Christchurch Outpatients building in Health News.
