Urgent Care

You can visit us for urgent medical problems and accidents, such as sprains, lacerations and broken bones, either when your GP is unavailable or if you feel your problem is too urgent to wait for an appointment with your GP.

We have x-ray and plastering facilities available, so fractures can be diagnosed quickly and most simple fractures can be treated on site.

After the initial consultation we encourage patients to follow up with their regular GP for continuity of care. We will forward your medical notes and copies of x-ray and investigation reports to your GP – unless you request us not to. If you do not have a GP we can assist you in finding one, or you can call the GP Waiting List Enquiry Service on 04 978 4373 or 0800 55 56 57.

Please Note: We do not provide medical certificates for WINZ benefits, immigration medicals, driving or diving medicals. Please contact your GP or visit Life Clinic

After initial treatment for a broken bone, ongoing care and follow up can be provided by our on-site fracture clinic.

The fracture clinic has appointments available on Monday and Tuesday mornings and is staffed by our orthopaedic specialist, Mr Alastair Grant and 2 specialist fracture clinic nurses.

WAMC Fracture clinic offers:

  • Early follow-up with an orthopaedic specialist after initial fracture
  • Specific appointment times
  • Synthetic casts in a variety of colours
  • Waterproof lining for casts, where appropriate
