When settling in Canterbury you need to register with a General Practice team. This team will become your first point of contact for health advice and care.
Once registered you can also call your General Practice Team 24 hours a day seven days a week, for free health care advice. After-hours your call will be answered by a registered nurse who can advise on what to do, and where to go if you need to be seen by a doctor.
For after-hours care there are three clinics in Christchurch you can visit. They are equipped to provide urgent medical care, treat fractures, broken bones, wound care, minor surgery and more..
