In the event of an emergency please dial 111




After Hours Service

Dial our surgery number 034360760 and our answerphone will give you instructions.

We provide Kurow, Twizel and Omarama community and our patients with an advanced level of medical care 24/7 with our GP or our PRIME NURSES on call at all times all year round.

This service enables you to phone for advice and support for yourself of others in need, or to support the local St Johns staff in the event of an emergency. You will either be seen onsite at the emergency or requested to be seen in the clinic at a time arranged by both parties.

We are a Primary assessment facility, so in the instance that you require hospital level or secondary level care, you would be transported by the best suitable option to either Oamaru or Dunedin Hospital.  If you are in the South Canterbury district on the north side of the Waitaki River, the option would be to Timaru Hospital.
