It provides regular satellite clinics to Lake Brunner, with a full-time Rural Nurse servicing this area and also the community at Gloriavale. Our staff includes junior and trainee doctors as well as experienced GPs. We may ask if you are happy for a junior doctor to see you. Note: As of July 2017, the Rural Academic General Practice clinic (previously based at Grey Base Hospital) has merged with the Greymouth Medical Centre on Tainui St.

How to make an appointment

We ask all patients to book their appointment by calling or visiting the practice, or to use the Health365 app, which can assist in booking an appointment, ordering repeats and prescriptions, to name a few helpful services.

Please note: The monitoring of test results service advertised on the Health365 site is not available yet for our patients. Please visit our practice, or call us for further details on Health365.

Also, when booking for an appointment with a nurse please bear in mind that nurse appointments are limited to 15 minutes only per consultation.  If in doubt as to whether the health care service you require could exceed that time please check with one of our friendly administrators before making an online booking with Health365.
