Out of Hours Arrangements

Much of your healthcare will be planned, even though some may be at short notice. Every now and again, nature demands more urgent attention.

Within Hours

Between 8am and 5pm, Integra staff are available to assist. With urgent care, it is always important to establish both the degree of urgency and the severity of your healthcare needs, so as to best advise and direct you. We are blessed with a team that have considerable experience in urgent and emergency care, across adults, children and babies.

Within hours, we would urge you to call us on the main clinic number (345) 745 7450.
