Buller Weekend Emergency clinic move to Outpatients department

Urgent after-hours clinics previously held at the Buller Health Medical Centre will move to the Buller Health Outpatients Department this from weekend; Saturday November 24 and Sunday November 25.

The move will mean people can park right outside the clinic with a single entranceway via the main Buller Health entrance in Cobden Street.

"The clinic is for people who need to see a doctor after hours where the situation is urgent but not an emergency, such as in the case of sick children," says Buller Health Acting Manager Barbara Smith.

The single point of entry is one of the changes that will occur as the processes and procedures for the new Buller Integrated Family Health Centre are implemented.

The urgent after-hours clinic will be open every Saturday and Sunday 2pm to 4pm.
