Howick Health and Medical Centre


We are a five doctor practice providing an array of patient centred services. As well as providing general family health care, we also perform travel health checks, chronic fatigue syndrome diagnoses, skin cancer surgery and hypnosis.

MEASLES INFORMATION: If you feel you may have some symptoms of measles please let reception know so we can help prepare for the visit. You will be told to either stay in the car or come through the back door. Please see our website for more information.

You can now obtain routine PRESCRIPTIONS ONLINE (24 hours noticed required please). For URGENT prescriptions please call the nurse. Select the 'Prescriptions Request' on our website home page. You may be required to come in if you haven't seen the doctor within the last 6 months.

We are closed on public holidays.

If you cannot see your usual doctor on the same day there is usually another doctor available who will be able to access your notes to help you. You can also ask to be put on a waiting list and we will do our best to accommodate your need.
