Welcome to Masterton Medical - where your healthcare is our priority

Masterton Medical is Wairarapa’s largest medical practice. We have a highly trained team of 20 doctors and 30 nurses who have come from all over the world to work in the Masterton community. We are proud to offer our patients a wide range of medical services – from immunisations through to specialist clinics and minor surgery.

It is our aim to provide patients with the best quality of care. Our Practice Charter details our approach to looking after our patients, as well as patients’ own responsibilities when they are in contact with the practice.

Masterton Medical respects patient confidentiality and ensures the privacy of patients in accordance with both the Health Information Privacy Code 1994 and our own Privacy Policy.

Information for Patients

Pay on the Day

Masterton Medical has a ‘pay on the day’ policy. Where this isn’t possible, we require bill settlement with 7 days.

Update your Records

Help us to keep your records current by updating your information. We need to know if you have recently moved or changed your name, email address or phone number. We are also keen to know if you are a non-smoker, an ex-smoker or a current smoker.

Test Results

It is Masterton Medical’s practice policy to directly notify our patients of any significant test result as soon as possible.

Patients who are registered with ManageMyHealth can access their results directly via the secure ManageMyHealth website.
