What kind of help do you need?
I need urgent help:
If this is an emergency and you or someone else needs urgent medical attention right now, phone 111 and ask for an ambulance.
I need to go to A&E:
If you or someone else has had an accident or is very unwell, but the situation is not life-threatening, go to your nearest Accident and Emergency Centre.
I need health advice:
If you are worried about a health problem and are not sure what to do, you can phone New Zealand's free 24/7 Healthline 0800 611 116. If English isn’t your first language, there are interpreters who can help.
I need to see a doctor:
If it is not an emergency, but you have a specific question about your health or someone else's health, contact your family doctor or nurse, or visit your nearest after-hours service. You can find a family doctor or medical clinic (and see their prices) at Healthpoint
I need to talk to a counsellor:
For mental health support, text or call 1737 for free at any time
I need health information:
See our Health A–Z for information about specific health conditions, our Medications section for advice about medicines and our Healthy Living section for tips on healthy eating, exercise, life stages, managing long-term conditions and much more. We also have a wide selection of videos and a growing app library.
