Campus student health centres
Massey's Student Health and Counselling Centre services are available to all students. Each campus health centre provides a range of services from doctor (GP) consultations, to arranging lab tests and injury management. We have skilled practice nurses who can give you health advice, and provide some medical care.
Our campus clinics are open Monday to Friday during working hours. They're closed on public holidays, between Christmas and New Year, and the Tuesday after Easter Monday.
If you need an appointment on an evening, weekend or public holiday, you will need to contact your local after-hours healthcare provider.
If you are learning by distance, you can still contact the health centre at the campus closest to you and discuss your best option with staff.
If you are an international student, currently enrolled at Massey and living in New Zealand, you may also use these services. You:
- can register as a patient
- must have medical insurance.
As each campus health centre receives funding from a different regional Primary Health Organisation (PHO), the types of services they can offer may differ. If you need a consultation for anything other than general health, our staff can tell you if we offer the service you want.
We provide general health services such as:
- advice on diet and exercise
- blood pressure checks
- consultations for all health problems
- contraceptive advice and emergency contraception
- sexual health
- hearing, eye and skin testing
- health information and advice
- laboratory tests, including blood tests
- minor surgery
- repeat prescriptions
- treatment with liquid nitrogen
- wellness and health checks.
If you require a specialist appointment or x-rays, for instance, a referral will be sent to another service as appropriate.
Laboratory tests and results
You can get your lab test results from a practice nurse by calling your health centre. (Unfortunately, it is not possible for staff to contact you with these results so you must ask for them by phoning the health centre.)
Some tests will require a follow up appointment. Other results, such as for HIV blood tests, must be given in person, so you will need to make an appointment with the nurse to get your results.
Wellington test results online
If you are enrolled with the health centre on Wellington campus, you will be able to access your lab results via Manage My Health website.
