Established in October 2014, Castlecliff Health is laid on the foundation of the core principles of Care, Communication and Competence; the 3Cs. We serve a high-needs population and are based in the beautiful seaside suburb of Castlecliff in Whanganui. We operate from a modern purpose-built premises with ample on-site parking.
The team was the proud recipient of the Good Space award at the New Zealand Primary Health Care Awards 2020 for the innovative design of the clinic facility.
Following a relaunch on 14 November 2020, Castlecliff Health will now be called Living Waters Medical (trading name). The clinic with the new name will operate from the same premises and with the same team. A new website www.livingwatersmedical.co.nz is currently being prepared and is expected to go live on January 11, 2021. Until the new website is operational this website will be kept operational for those who wish to seek information re our services.
We continue to operate as a Very Low Cost Access Clinic with the same fee structure as before.
The team takes an innovative approach to the practice of medicine and delivery of health care to its enrolled population. Our modern approach to the model of care involves a matrix of clinicians including Nurse Practitioners and Enrolled Nurses in addition to the traditional model of care which rested on Registered Nurses and General Practitioners. The clinical team rests on a strong foundation of support provided by our front-line administrative team comprising a Practice Manager and a Medical Receptionist.
Through strategic business modelling the clinic has been able to continue providing services as a Very Low Cost Access Clinic without a compromise on the quality of care.
The clinic has firm roots in the community both as a clinic/business and as a team. We work to enhance the health status of our community by supporting them towards achieving positive health outcomes through our innovative approach in delivering primary health care.
The team also provides primary health services to the Health Centre at the Kaitoke (Whanganui) Prison in addition to various private companies in the suburb of Castlecliff and wider Whanganui city/region.
