  • Our practice is an active member of the East Care group, which is a cooperative association of most of the Howick and Pakuranga general practitioners.
  • East Care A&M, 260 Botany Road, provides an after hours and urgent service for the patients of the member practices. East Care is the only A&M to provide a 24-hour service 7 days a week service in all of South Auckland.
  • East Care is not a General Practice and so is not able to provide continuity of care, but is provided as a service to their patients by the local GPs for after hours care and for patients unable to see their GP that day who have an urgent problem.
  • East Care forwards information about the problem you presented with, the investigations performed and the treatment or advice provided.
