Emergency Department
If you are experiencing an emergency dial – 111

Timaru Hospital’s Emergency Department is an increasingly busy place. A significant proportion of these attendances are by people who could be seen and treated by a general practitioner (GP) or after-hours doctor. The result can be longer waiting times in some instances for some people, an often frustrating and anxious experience.

How do I know if my condition is serious?
When in doubt ring your GP to describe your symptoms and seek advice. Or call the 24-hour HealthLine 0800 611 116. You can also find out more about where to go when you aren’t feeling well here.
