Picton Medical Centre is a busy semi-rural practice covering Picton and the Marlborough Sounds with access to Wairau Hospital and specialists located 25 minutes away in Blenheim. We also provide general practice services at the Royal New Zealand Air Force Base at Woodbourne, located just outside Blenheim.

We have a purpose build centre and can cater for up to 7000 patients. The facility includes a pharmacy, consulting rooms, a surgery room, a triage area and car parks for more than 20 patients.

We are proudly a family friendly clinic

If you change your address or phone number please let us know. It is also very important to give your new address to any specialists you are currently seeing, and to the hospital if you are waiting on an outpatient appointment or surgery.
