The Doctors, Napier are welcoming new patients now. Give us a call or drop in to reception find out about enrolling

We also welcome casual and walk-in patients after hours, on weekends and public holidays.
We are open every day of the year.
The Doctors, Napier provides a complete accident and family health service. We welcome our booked, enrolled patients on week days, as well as walk-in, casual patients 7 days a week. We are open every day of the year, as well as providing on-call backup outside of our normal opening hours. The Doctors was founded in Napier in 1989.
In addition to the full range of primary care, we offer a number of additional services, including nurse-led health clinics and programmes giving patients expert guidance, support, or treatment. For patient convenience, we are also home to a physiotherapist, x-ray, midwives and pharmacy. All our systems are fully computerised, allowing us to access test results directly from the laboratory.
The attached advice from Dr Lester Calder, the Public Health Medicine Specialist and Medical Officer of Health, applies to primary, secondary and tertiary students.
Flu vaccines are now available! These are free for everyone over 65, pregnant women, and people with certain long term conditions including:
• current invasive cancer
• cardiovascular disease
• respiratory disease requiring preventative inhaler therapy
• renal disease
Children from the age of 6 months can also have the flu vaccine (dosage may vary - check with your practice nurse).
Ask your doctor or practice nurse if you qualify for a free vaccine and make an appointment today.
Have you been to see your gp in the last two and a half years? No? While this is probably a good thing, it may mean that you could lose your enrolment status with us. This means that the next time you do need to see your gp you may have to pay more (up to $40 more in some instances).
The good news is that it is easy to re-enrol. Simply give us a call or drop in next time you are nearby and one of our reception team will help you through the quick and easy process.
We endeavour to advise patients by mail that they may be about to lose their enrolment status. This is why it is important to let us know if any of your contact details change. Changing your details is easy and can be done online by clicking here.
