stress management & wellness clinic
The Doctors Napier offer a personal stress management and wellness clinic, provided by nurse Jillian Simpson. Jillian has specific training in this area, in addition to her varied nursing background.
Medical research has clearly shown that prolonged stress can have a negative effect on physical, emotional and mental health. People attending this clinic will be offered wellness screening which may include blood tests, body composition assessment, and if required, mental health questionnaires.
When you enrol, we’ll book you in for a free health assessment, so we can send you reminders and recalls for important health management. Being enrolled has many advantages:
Pay less to see the doctor
- Pay less for prescriptions (for subsidised medicines prescribed by your doctor)
- Appointment bookings
introducing dr van der wulp
We are delighted to welcome a new doctor to our team in Napier:
- Dr Wybke van der Wulp has just joined us from the Netherlands. She has moved to NZ wth her husband and three young children. We welcome them and hope they will be happy in our beautiful town.
We are thrilled to have Wybke on our team, and she is accepting new patients.
On weekends and public holidays, and early evenings, we offer an urgent care service for minor acute conditions. Appointments are not needed - you can just walk in. Urgent walk-in patients take priority.
If you would like to see your regular GP for non-urgent or non-acute health concerns, please always make an appointment during our normal weekday hours. ALWAYS make an appointment for the following:
triage: most ill, first care
We follow a triage system which decides the priority of your treatment based on the severity of your symptoms. If you are displaying urgent and acute symptoms you will always be treated with priority. Leaving your visit until evenings or weekends will mean that you may not be able to the see the doctor of your choice and may be faced with a long waiting time.
