Hospital’s Emergency Department for emergencies only

Please keep Christchurch Hospital’s Emergency Department for emergencies only

The public is being reminded to keep Christchurch Hospital’s Emergency Department for emergencies only, following an influx in people with non-serious injuries who could be seeking treatment at afterhours services.

Staff at Christchurch Hospital say waiting times in the Emergency Department are being affected by the influx and they would like to remind people to telephone their general practice in the first instance (unless it is an emergency) if they need health advice during the Christmas and New Year period.

This advice applies to all Canterbury residents, regardless of where they live.

If a visit to a doctor is required, after hours medical services (such as Moorhouse Medical Centre, Riccarton Clinic and Pegasus Health’s 24Hour Surgery at Bealey Ave) will be open throughout the holiday period.
