Tokoroa Medical Centre is short staffed at the moment, so we're doing things a bit differently to ensure everyone gets the right medical care as soon as possible.
Tokoroa Medical Centre has been short staffed for a few months, as some of our doctors have left, and some are on long-term leave. We have been trying hard to find new doctors, but there is a nationwide shortage which is making it harder than usual.
We are still here for our patients though. Please don't put off getting in touch if you're unwell, we want everyone to get the care they need.
Part-time doctors from out of town are helping out, and virtual consults are also available. A nurse practitioner who can write prescriptions has joined the team, and Waikato DHB is helping us find new doctors. We hope to have more doctors available for face to face appointments from June.
Here's what you can expect in the meantime.
