The Doctors Waipawa

Welcome to our practice

We proudly serve the rural township of Waipawa and surrounding areas with general practice medical services. The practice is computerised using MedTech 32 patient management system, and as a satellite clinic of The Doctors Hastings, we are fully supported by the Hastings Team. Our Doctors are supported by experienced Registered Nurses and Receptionists.

COVID-19 Notice: in Alert Level 1 our consults are in person and through phone or video. Phone 06 857 8507 to book appointments. To ensure everyone gets the help they need and keep you safe, we may screen  appointment requests which may involve calling you back with more details.

We’re providing our service in a new way to ensure you and your whanau remain safe through COVID-19. When you phone or visit the clinic we'll ask if you have any cough, cold, or flu-like symptoms or if you're concerned about COVID-19. This doesn't mean we think you have coronavirus, it's our part in helping keep our community safe and healthy. 

We do COVID-19 testing and our practice is safe to visit

Safety is our priority. We do COVID-19 testing in your car where possible or in an isolation room if an assessment is required. This means there's no additional risk to you when you visit for other medical issues. We have strict infection prevention standards in place.

Thanks for your patience and continued support.
