The main Whangārei Clinic is open, however, COVID-19 restrictions are in place. Please be advised the clinic doors are currently closed. This is to minimise any risk and unnecessary prolonged contact.

Before coming to clinic please phone to book a time when a clinician can phone you, our freephone number is 0800 286 828. Where possible your care will be managed without the need for you to enter the clinic building. We prefer to take your sexual history via phone, you may like to find a private space to make your call.

If this is not possible and you are asked to attend, on arrival please remain in your car and phone 0800 286 828

If you do not come in a car please phone and we will advise you what to do 0800 286 828

You can still drop into clinic, however where possible we will ask that you speak to one of our clinicians via 0800 286 828 or come to the door where you will be met by a member of staff before entering the building.

We apologise for any inconvenience
