  • are accessing our extra services e.g. fracture clinic

  • are visiting Rotorua

We like to make it easy for you to get the medical attention you need without an appointment. Our team is qualified and available to take care of you. Waiting times do vary. For general health advice and information please call Healthline 0800 611 116.

Here for you when you need us

Lakes PrimeCare was established in 1993 to provide a central point for after hours care and a service for visitors to our city.

At all times we have qualified nurses including Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners and Nurse Prescribers who may be able to see you instead of waiting for the doctor.

We have our own registered doctor during the day and after-hours we are staffed by a roster of doctors from practices around Rotorua.
