Missing Appointments

It is important that you contact us at least 2 hours before your appointment time if you cannot make your appointment.

You can phone (06) 350 5533, or email  to cancel your appointments.

Failure to contact us to cancel your appointment in time will automatically result in a Did Not Attend (DNA) charge of $10 being added to your account. All accounts will need to be paid in full before further appointments can be made.

The DNA charge applies to all patients.

Students failing to turn up for their booked appointments wastes resources across Student Health,  for the sake of the other students needing to use these services, your fellow peers, we strongly encourage you to take responsibility and cancel your appointments if they are no longer required.
