Manage My Health
If you are enrolled with Student Health Clinic, please consider registering with the online patient portal, Manage My Health.
This enables you to make appointments, request repeat prescriptions and seek health advice by email from our doctors and nurses.
If you are unwell and would like to see any of our health professionals, you can make an appointment:
- Phone 07-838-4037 or 0800 WAIKATO
- Online via Manage My Health patient portal if you have signed up and are an enrolled patient
- At the reception desk, if you are unable to call first
Our doctors and nurses do have some same-day appointments. Depending on your health issues you may be offered an appointment on another day or advised to drop into the Health Centre.
Our nurses are able to manage many everyday health concerns like sore throats, urinary tract infections and sexually transmitted infections. You can call us and talk to one of our team of friendly and very experienced nurses.
Our mental health nurses also run a drop-in clinic between 1-3pm every day.
You are welcome to bring a support person to any of your appointments.
