About The 24 Hour Surgery 

We are an urgent care centre in Waitaha Canterbury that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We have an integral role in the health system in Waitaha, assisting both general practice and hospitals. We have access to rapid labs, and imaging which enables us to determine if patients can be safely managed in the community, reducing pressure on hospitals. We also have a fracture service, five bed observation unit, radiology, and diagnostic services are available on site. This wider scope of practice provides an environment that is both challenging and satisfying.

We have around 160 staff, in both clinical and support services roles. Our doctors and nurse practitioners have backgrounds in urgent care, general practice and emergency medicine. Our nursing team have a wide range of experience in primary and emergency care, with many having specialised skills in child health, care of fractures, wounds and acute medical care.

We are supported by over 260 general practitioners in Ōtautahi Christchurch who nominate us as their preferred provider of afterhours care for their patients and who also work with us on a rostered basis. This relationship is greatly valued by our community.
