ED is for emergencies

Call 111 or go to your nearest emergency department (ED):Tauranga Hospital Whakatāne Hospital
For minor illnesses or injuries:
Visit a walk-in medical centre
For infections or persistent symptoms:
Visit your family doctor (GP) or health clinic
For everyday ailments or symptoms:
Visit your local pharmacy
You might not have to come to ED, but we're here if you need us.
