First Health and Wellness Centre is a nurse-led, community, casual and urgent care medical service.

We are here to support the health needs of the Wairarapa community and visitors.

We do not enrol patients at our centre. We provide casual/urgent medical care, including seeing patients when they cannot get an appointment at their normal health centre or visitors to Wairarapa. 

Consults are with a registered Nurse and our Nurse Practitioner, if necessary.

First Health and Wellness Centre operates under the umbrella of Manaaki Ki Wairarapa Charitable Trust.
