Services & Fees

At Otara Family and Christian Health Centre, our vibrant team is specially trained to meet the health care needs of families and communities. Our practice team has doctors, nurses, health care assistants, dieticians, podiatrists, midwives and pharmacists. 

Patient Care Information

You may not need to see a doctor to get the care and advice you need – our nurses, healthcare assistants and health coach can often provide much of your regular care. This is cheaper and they often have more time. 

If you have regular hospital visits, talk to us about having a care coordinator. They can often save you time by answering many of your questions. A care coordinator can also create a care plan with you. This helps everyone know what’s planned and what you should do when unwell. 

Our team works together to provide you with the best care.
