Shorecare is proud to announce that we have been selected by the Waitemata DHB to provide subsidised after-hours care to our North Shore community.
We have been given the responsibility of providing subsidised care to certain patient groups after hours.
Patients who qualify include those eligible to receive publicly funded New Zealand healthcare who are over 65, under 13, holders of a current community services or high user card, and/or identified as living at lower decile addresses falling into the quintile 5 (Q5) category.
Shorecare offers free care or reduced charges from 5pm to 8am weekdays, all weekends and public holidays for eligible patients.
This is to ensure that those who need it most are able to access healthcare after hours, and provides additional funding for medical consultations outside of standard GP hours, reducing some of the cost barriers that may have affected some of our patients in the past.
We also offer FREE accident care for children under 13 years at any time.
We provide excellent care for acute illness and specialise in minor injuries and fracture management. For patients with wounds, we can provide tetanus cover, thorough cleansing, wound closure if required, and on-going dressing care. For those with possible broken bones we have x-ray facilities at both locations, and provide specialist plastering skills should this be required. We also run regular specialist orthopaedic clinics which allow us to manage most fractures from day 1 through to healing.
With two convenient locations, the choice is yours!
Our Northcross clinic is open 8am – 8pm 7 days a week including public holidays. For services outside of Northcross hours, visit our Smales Farm clinic, which is the only 24-hour urgent care clinic on the North Shore. No appointment is needed at either location, just walk in.
More importantly, our clinics have an experienced and dedicated team of doctors and support staff who aim to attend to you promptly, and offer you and your family sound advice and care for the best possible outcome.
