Urgent CARE

We’re open 24 hours a day, every
day for you and your family when your own doctor is not available.

We provide urgent medical and accident care and are nominated by over 320 General Practitioners in Christchurch as the preferred provider of after hours care for their patients.

As we are an Urgent Care Clinic and do not have enrolled patients, we strongly recommend that you do enrol with a General Practice and utilise our services only when your GP is not available. Being enrolled with a GP provides you with numerous benefits including continuity of care, better access to health services and reduced fees. To find a GP in your area, please use the Locate a Pegasus Health GP tool on the Pegasus Health website.
