24 Hour Surgery - Temporary Hours
From Thursday 21 September, 24 Hour Surgery will close to patients each day between 10.00pm and 8.00am the following day.

In an emergency, call 111. If you need urgent care or advice, please call Healthline on 0800 611 116.
If it is not urgent, you can make a virtual appointment at Practice Plus practiceplus.nz

When visiting, please let the team know if you have tested positive for COVID-19, remember to maintain social distancing, and ensure you are wearing a surgical mask before speaking with a nurse or doctor.
When you first arrive, you will be asked if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. You will then be asked to wait in a portable cabin to be seen by the triage nurse.
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.
