Urgent care

If you’re feeling unwell, call your GP team 24/7

Unless it’s an emergency (when you should call 111), always make your general practice team your first call when you or someone in your family is sick.

You can call your general practice team 24/7 – just phone your usual general practice number. After hours, your call will be answered by a registered nurse who can advise on what to do, and where to go if you need to be seen by a doctor.

If you are directed to the 24 Hour Surgery for care, it is located at 401 Madras Street, Christchurch. You can phone the 24 Hour Surgery on 03 365 7777. Visit the 24 Hour Surgery website to find out more.

Information about all after hours options available to patients can be found on the Canterbury DHB website.
