Three Rivers Medical is now able to vaccinate for COVID – please call to book for first dose or second.
As of Monday 29th November 2021, we will be vaccinating all patients who are due their booster shots. Please call to book an appointment for all vaccinations
Our staff are all here to discuss any concerns or worries that you and your whanau may have if you have not had your first dose.
A friendly reminder if you require a COVID swab, a repatriation swab or you are not enrolled with a Doctor in Gisborne please book to make an appointment.
Three Rivers Medical continues to use mainly telephone consultations. Please don’t come to the clinic unless you are asked to. Instead, you can ring and book your appointments on 0508 3RIVERS and a GP or nurse will call you back at or around the agreed time. If you are asked to attend the clinic you must wear a mask at all times, even while in your car. Normal weekday and weekend charges will apply for phone consultations and prescriptions. Phone reception for childhood immunisations (which have resumed by appointment only); or queries around cervical and CVRA screening. Please note, our staff and telephone system are under pressure with the increase in the volume of queries and telephone consultations. We appreciate your patience during this time. Thank you for helping us unite against COVID-19. Visit www.healthy.org.nz for the latest Covid-19 advice.
About Three Rivers Medical
Three Rivers Medical began as an initiative of the owners of Kaiti Medical Centre, which out-grew rooms in Kaiti, the eastern suburb of Gisborne, where it had been for 30 years. New Zealand’s government wants better, sooner, more convenient health services. We are a group of health professionals who decided to make this vision a reality. Three Rivers Medical opened in August 2012.

United against influenza
Eligible Three Rivers Medical patients are being vaccinated against influenza by Turanga Health nurses as the region’s two biggest primary health providers unite against the deadly disease.
Nurse Ayla Evans enjoys being part of a team at Three Rivers Medical Centre, making a positive difference in the health and lives of patients in Gisborne.
In yet another year of controversy, Three Rivers Medical introduced a wild card in its annual cook-off with Turanga Health, in which the two health providers celebrate healthy eating . . . and healthy competition.
The recent confirmed case of measles in Gisborne has resulted in a significant increase at 3Rivers in the number of related phone calls and patients requiring vaccination and face-to-face time. This has put additional pressure on an already stretched system.
THEY might be all about healthy living but they don't mind a bit of healthy competition as well! Staff from Tūranga Health and Three Rivers Medical in November donned aprons and took up spatulas to take part in their semi-annual Cook-Off.
