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.

If you have more than one issue to discuss please consider booking a longer appointment.

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.

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.

Please call (and not book online) reception to book any surgery or special medicals (ie work medicals).

Please do not book online a relative/friend who has not attended our clinic. Please call for an appointment instead.

Patients wishing to see Dr. Rosamund Vallings should book extra time if told in the past extra time is required. Also please do not book children under 13 years of age with Dr. Vallings..

Proposal to remove 3 car parks from Ridge Rd adjacent to our practice.

Auckland Transport has proposed the above and while we agree with removing the car park closest to the corner of Nelson and Ridge Road for safety reasons, we object to removal of the 2 car parks adjacent to the grass berm outside our practice. This would result in 2 less car parks for our patients and encourage more car movements on site. We propose time limited (1 hour) for these 2 car parks. you agree with our stance we would appreciate your feedback to Auckland transport at the following link:
