Welcome to Mapua Health Centre

We offer a comprehensive general practice service to the local area, which includes Mapua, Ruby Bay, Upper Moutere, Tasman and the coastal highway to Appleby, as well as to patients who live outside the area and choose to travel to Mapua.

Our aim is to work alongside each individual to achieve their best possible health and well-being. We have a great team of skilled and experienced staff working in a well-equipped, caring and friendly environment. We also provide specialist services in Hyperbaric and Integrative Medicine.

The practice has achieved the Cornerstone national certification of excellence.

Consultations are by appointment although urgent problems can be seen as needed. Each appointment is normally for 15 minutes and we appreciate a phone call if you are going to be late or need to change the time. If appointments are not kept without letting us know in reasonable time to re-book them, a fee may be charged. We will also endeavour to contact you if we are running late due to accidents and emergency cases.

It is very helpful if you can say whether your appointment is or a particular need such as ACC, ante-natal, insurance medical, contraception, complementary medicine, acupuncture etc so they can be fitted in appropriately. If you think you may need more time please ask for a longer appointment.

Doctor – including Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays:

After-hours calls are initially put though to a nursing triage service that can give medical advice and there is a free 24 hour telephone health advice at Healthline, 0800 611 116.  There is also the Medical and Injury Centre at 96 Waimea Road, Nelson, which is open 7 days a week from 8am to 10pm, phone 03 546 8881.  If there is a medical emergency and delay in reaching the duty doctor, phone 111.

Home visits and urgent call outs are normally restricted to patients who live in the Mapua and Moutere districts. Those living in other areas may need to consider contacting the local medical service in that area or attend the Medical and Injury Centre.  Emergencies can go directly to the Accident and Emergency department at Nelson hospital.
