This week (10 May) marks the first anniversary of the 24 Hour Surgery relocation to Pegasus House at 401 Madras Street, Christchurch. The transition has gone seamlessly with the new facility providing an improved working environment for our staff and a much better experience for our patients.
The busiest day in the last year was on Christmas Eve with 411 patients walking through the door, while the busiest hour was between 11am-noon on 2nd July when 44 patients presented. Some other interesting facts from the past 12 months:
◦Seen over 4200 babies (<1yrs old)
