This friendly practice has six consulting rooms and four nursing stations within the surgery. Pathology, pharmacist and x-ray facilities are all on site, as is a District Health Board run Emergency Department that sees all serious acute trauma and chest pains, etc. Ours is a friendly, relaxed practice. The welcoming staff of receptionists, practice nurses and GPs will assist you in settling in.
The practice has around 7000 registered patients. Around 70% of our practice population are high needs and 54% are Māori and Pasifika. They are generally appreciative and non-demanding patients.
Tokoroa has a population of approximately 14 000 (Another surgery services the balance of patients.). A full spectrum of schooling facilities caters for kindergarten right through to community-based tertiary education.
Surrounding the town are many dairy farms, plantation forests and scenic reserves. Lake ‘Moana-Nui’ is a lunch time stroll from the practice. There are about forty five lakes within a forty-five-minute drive of this town!
Its central location means that it is an hour’s drive to Hamilton, Tauranga, Rotorua or Taupo. Two and a half hours will get you to Auckland, The Coromandel Peninsula or the ski fields at Mount Ruapehu.
