Doctor and nurse appointments
Our dedicated team of doctors and nurses provide primary medical care as well as health education and promotion.
- We will continue to deliver the majority of our Health and Counselling services online or by phone.
- Services will continue to be available to students who cannot return to Wellington and are living elsewhere in New Zealand.
- From Monday 18 May, Student Health and Student Counselling (Mauri Ora) will provide some in-person counselling, doctor, and nurse appointments.
- You can continue to book routine phone appointments with your GP by calling 04 463 5308.
- Telephone triage remains available for urgent on the day requests.
- In person services such as immunisations, ongoing depo contraception, B12, and testosterone injections and cervical smears can be booked by support staff directly by calling 04 463 5308.
- For other appointment requests, where an in-person consultation may be required, you will first be offered a telephone triage appointment with a nurse or doctor to determine if you need to come in.
- Prescription requests for your medication should continue to be requested using the Student Health (Mauri Ora) online form.
If you need to come in
- Tell us if you have a cough, runny/blocked nose, sore throat, fever, or are newly breathless. If you have any of these symptoms, do not come into the building without phoning first.
- If you have a mask, please feel free to wear it.
- Try not to arrive early for your appointment to keep time spent at Mauri Ora to a minimum.
- If you do arrive early for your appointment, please wait outside if you can. Don’t enter the building until the time of your appointment.
- Please check in with the support staff member at the door.
- You may be asked to wait outside so please dress for the weather and respect physical distancing. Your clinician will call you when they are ready to see you.
- Use the hand sanitiser on entry.
- Remember your 2 metre spacing—some parts of the waiting room will be blocked off.
