Riccarton Clinic is an accredited Urgent Care Clinic. This means that we have systems in place to deal with urgent medical and injury cases during our extended hours of operation whether needed by our enrolled patients, by a casual patient or by a visitor to New Zealand. For casual patients a copy of our notes will go to your normal GP unless you ask us not to send them. If we are closed you can get health advice by phoning our main number.
Urgent Care Services
We provide triaged walk-in access to Medical and Accident treatments during our extended hours of operation. When we are closed you can access a healthcare support service staffed by nurses by calling our normal number (03 343 3661). The support service will help you to decide the most appropriate course of action to take.
The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) provides comprehensive, no-fault personal injury cover for all New Zealand residents and visitors to New Zealand. If you or someone you care for is injured, get treatment as soon as possible. Don’t wait until you feel better, as this can often make the injury worse and your recovery longer.Find out more
