About Us

Halswellhealth has been providing general practice services to the community of Halswell from Ensign Street for over 40 years. During that time the practice has expanded on three occasions to meet the needs of the growing population. The 2011 earthquake saw growth in the Halswell and surrounding area accelerate. December 2014 saw the culmination of many years of planning with the newly developed Longhurst Health facility in the Longhurst subdivision. The doctors have been joined in this project by the two local pharmacists and dentist.

We offer a personal, caring service. It is important we get to know you and we would like you to get to know us.

News

We are continuing to run flu clinics. Please phone reception on 03 322 8121 to make an appointment (please note this appointment will only be for a flu vaccine). 

Zostavax vaccines for immunisation against Shingles are in short supply nationally.  We currently have a restricted amount and are prioritising our patients who are already 80 years old.  If you are 65 to 79 years old we will be able to start vaccinating once more supplies become available.  Please note that this vaccine will not be given at the same time as the flu vaccine. This is because your GP will need to check whether it is clinically appropriate to give you the Zostavax vaccine.  

Booking online appointments

When you book an appointment online it is for a standard GP appointment.  If you wish to book an extended appointment or nursing services (including immunisations) you will need to ring us.

For continuity of care, please book with the GP you are enrolled with, or their locum, whenever possible.

Cancelling an appointment

If you no longer require your booked appointment, please cancel it in good time so that another patient can be seen. You can ring us or, if you have booked online, you can use the online service to cancel the appointment.  Please do not email us to cancel an appointment as this may not be seen in time.
