What do I need to bring with me to enrol?

If you were born outside of NZ:  Tōtara Health can only enrol you if you have a work visa or permit that lets you live and work in New Zealand for at least 2 years, or if you are a NZ resident or Citizen.  Please bring your passport and visa with you when you enrol. 

If you were born in NZ: Please bring a copy of your birth certificate or passport.  If you are unable to bring this with you, please talk to our receptionist as we may still be able to enrol you.

Can I see a Doctor straight away when I enrol?

If you need to see a doctor before we have confirmed your enrolment an appointment may be made in our urgent clinic for urgent medical needs only.  Please phone to make an appointment on 873 0101

If you have been enrolled with another Doctor, we will request your notes from them.  Once your notes have arrived we will contact you to welcome you to the practice and confirm your enrolment with Tōtara Health.  You can then make an appointment to see your regular doctor or nurse.
