Wicksteed Medical Centre is a progressive group general practice that has continuously served the local community for over 50 years.

Opening in 1970, Wicksteed Medical Centre was the first purpose built group medical practice in Whanganui. Since that time we strived to remain up to date with all facets of primary health care to provide high quality, appropriate and accessible care that will meet the needs of all our patients.

Our dedicated team of doctors, nurses and administration staff have a wealth of experience and expertise. We are committed to providing quality care to all of our patients in a warm, friendly and comfortable environment.
