Upper Hutt Health Centre is a large teaching practice with an enrolled population of 17,000 patients, providing a wide range of services, including acute services, minor operations and nurse-led clinics, eg Diabetes and LTC Long Term Conditions. We provide an after hours service every week day evening, weekends and public holidays and we are open every day.
Our dedicated doctors and nurses provide quality care in a
team environment. We are the largest practice in Upper Hutt, employing
14 doctors, 14 nurses and a great admin support team.
As an integrated family health centre, we have numerous providers on site, including radiology, podiatry, audiology, physiotherapy and pharmacy.
We are pleased to announce that after 12 months of disruption, the building refurbishment is completed. The new larger pharmacy is fantastic and the pharmacy staff are just loving their bright, modern surroundings. The Health Centre's main waiting room and reception is looking much brighter and colourful and children visiting enjoy using the large red ottomans. The doctors and nurses have all returned to the main part of the building, which has also been strengthened in accordance with the building code. We would like to thank our patients for their understanding and tolerance during the sometimes dusty, noisy, hot or cold refurbishment process. We think it was worth it.
