About Us

For over 20 years we have been committed to providing friendly, caring healthcare to Belfast and the wider Canterbury area.

We have achieved The Foundation Standard. The Foundation Standard is a quality certification from the Royal NZ College of General Practitioners.  The Foundation programme represents a collection of legislative, regulatory and clinical requirements for all general practices in Aotearoa New Zealand. It represents a nationally consistent benchmark by which a practice can measure its current quality of care and progress toward health equity outcomes.

We have also achieved Cornerstone Accreditation. This allows us to be a teaching practice with GP Registrars and Trainee Interns working with us throughout the year.


Our Professional Commitment to your Care

We are members of Pegasus Health. Pegasus Health support and assist us in the delivery of excellent medical services to you. Their commitment, and our commitment, is to “provide you with the right care in the right place at the right time”.

We belong to the 24 Hours Surgery.  This means that when our surgery is closed, you will be covered by the 24 Hours Surgery on 401 Madras Street.

Our Personal Commitment to your Care

You will be given the attention and quality advice you need. And if it becomes clear you need the services of other community health groups, we are networked with them and can quickly put you in touch with the right people in Belfast, Christchurch or North Canterbury.

We work hard to help you every visit.

MEDIQUAL™ offers the best choices for your health

We have found that people like you become empowered if they are given information. So when you come and tell us about your medical condition, we will help you understand the possibilities and options you now have. And then support you to make an informed decision about your next step. We are in this together.

It is your life and you are in charge. We are here to assist you in making good choices each step of the way. This empowers you. And this is central to how we practice.

Our Commitment to the Community

Family is vitally important to you and also to us. So we are active in supporting the family, both in our practice and the communities we serve in the greater Christchurch area and North Canterbury. Family is important … both in our neighbourhood and beyond.

At home you have family who will support you. Outside you have friends. Let us become part of your support network.

2) MEDIQUAL™ aims to go the Second Mile. This means that we will do our very best to help you, BUT we do expect you to take responsibility for your own actions and to be part of the solution.
