In response to on-going staffing pressures across the West Coast, the following temporary changes to Buller Health’s services will come into effect for a week starting on Monday (08/08/2022).
For appointments, enquiries, prescriptions or results please phone Buller Medical Centre on 03 788 9277 during week day opening hours (Monday – Friday; 8:45am – 5:00pm).
Staffing shortages as a result of vacancies and sickness continue to impact services right across the West Coast and the rest of the country. On a daily basis, we are constantly juggling our staffing resources to ensure that health care services continue to be provided in the best possible way, says Holly Mason, Te Whatu Ora Te Tai o Poutini West Coast’s Director of Nursing.
Remember, if you are injured or experiencing severe symptoms, it’s critical that you call 111.
We want to thank the Buller community for their on-going patience and apologise for any inconvenience that this situation may cause. Everyone can help us out by planning ahead as much as possible for routine health care by booking early,” says Ms Mason.
