Welcome to the Pleasant Point-Health Centre.
The Pleasant Point Health Centre is an integrated health centre, based in the heart of the Pleasant Point village in South Canterbury. Our staff all work together as a team to look after your health needs.
Our clinical staff include Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses and a part-time GP.
We provide a Phlebotomy service here every week and Podiatrists and Physiotherapists and Massage Therapists also provide their services from our premises on a regular basis.
This is not a traditional “medical” centre. The Pleasant Point Health Centre is the first General Practice in New Zealand to have all its patients registered to a Nurse Practitioner. We do have a GP-led clinic on a regular basis, but the majority of our patient’s health care needs are provided by our Registered Nurses and our Nurse Practitioners. Our patients have access to the same range of services that they would at most other GP practices.
Whilst we are trailblazing a new model of practice, you can rest assured that if you do need to see a specialist, that our clinicians will refer you on to one.
All of the information that you may need about the services that we provide can be found on this site, using the menus at the top, bottom and side of each page.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries.

24 Hour Health Care
Obviously, we can’t be at the practice 24 hours a day, but we do want to ensure that your healthcare needs are covered.
Remember: If you have an emergency at any time, call 111.
If you need non-emergency medical treatment and it is outside normal business hours, call the practice on 03 614 7002 and your call will be diverted to HML (Homecare Medical Limited). They will advise you on what to do in order for you to get the assistance that you need, as quickly as possible.
Point Health is now part of the “Temuka-Geraldine-Pleasant Point” After-Hours roster. If you do need to see a clinician outside normal business hours, then your appointment may well be in either Temuka, Geraldine or Pleasant Point and the clinician will be whomever is on call at that time.
The 4-digit number is free to text or call anytime to talk with a trained counsellor, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Click here >>>>> for more information
