Drop-in clinics

Te kuhu noa mai

Our drop-in service is available at most of our clinics and allows you to be seen without booking an appointment.

What is a ‘drop-in’?

A drop-in service is easily accessible and allows you to be seen without a booked appointment.

Clients are seen on a first-come basis. You will be given priority if you need emergency contraception.

Waiting times will vary

Clients waiting for a drop-in appointment at our clinics.

Please arrive as close to the beginning of the drop-in time as possible. It may take a while to see everyone who is waiting and sometimes you may not be seen during the session if demand is high.

You will be told as soon as possible if you will not be able to be seen that day and offered to book an appointment or come back to the next drop-in clinic.

If time is an issue for you, it may be best to make an appointment. You can do this at a clinic or by phoning the clinic.

Hours for drop-in clinics

Sometimes the drop-in clinic times may be different from those advertised. It is a good idea to check that the drop-in clinic is running as scheduled.

Services available at drop-in clinic clinics
