Christmas Hours & Closure

Christmas Hours & Closure

After a very busy year, the practice has decided to close over the Christmas period to give all our staff a very deserved break to spend time with their friends and whānau.

The practice will be closing on Friday the 23rd of December at midday. On Wednesday the 4th of January until Friday the 6th of January we will re-open at the reduced hours of 9am-12pm for limited services while operating with reduced staff.

We will to back to our usual business hours on Monday the 9th of January at 8.30am.


If you require prescriptions, please ensure all requests are sent to the practice by the 20th of December to give staff enough time to fulfill requests. Any requests sent through Manage my Health during our closure period will not be actioned until after the 9th of January.

North Avon Pharmacy will remain open 8.30am-6pm on business days to assist you with your medicine needs. They will only close on statutory holidays and weekends.
