Zero fees for GP and Nurse Practitioner appointments will remain in place for the remainder of this week for all people enrolled at both Buller Medical Centre and Coast Medical in Westport.
From Monday 9 August, both GP practices will continue to provide this service to enrolled patients who have been directly affected by the recent flood event for the next three months.
This service is being provided to support members of the Westport community who have been most affected by recent events to ensure they have access to health care services as they rebuild their lives.
All enrolled patients can also still access free health advice after hours by calling their GP practice and following the instructions on the answerphone – for Buller Medical Centre ring 03 788-9277 and for Coast Medical ring 03 789-5000.
Remember, if it’s an emergency, please call 111.
