We would like to advise a change of location for some of our Christchurch Outpatient surgical clinics.

When visiting our service in Christchurch you will be seen by one of our three surgeons;

  • Phil Bird
  • Melanie Souter
  • Daran Murray

Clinic appointments for Ministry of Health funded patients are usually held at Christchurch Public Hospital but for some public patients (and all private patients) clinics may occasionally be held at the private rooms where all three specialist surgeons operate their own practices. Until now this has been: Specialists at Nine, 9 Caledonian Road, St. Albans, Christchurch 8014. From 15 December 2017 our surgeons will be re-locating their private rooms to the Forte Health campus.

The address for the Forte Health clinic is;

Level 2, 132 Peterborough Street,
Christchurch 8013

Patients will be advised of which clinic they have their appointment at (Christchurch Hospital or Forte Health) in their appointment letter. The new outpatient clinic is relatively close to the Caledonian Road site. Travel arrangements with DHB travel coordinators will be changed to reflect the new clinic location.

Please note this affects Outpatient clinics only. All surgeries in Christchurch are still done at St. George’s Hospital.

If you have any questions please address these in the first instance to;

Gillian Nicolle, Clinical Coordinator
