Our Specialities

Junction Health specialise in various medical fields.


Skin Cancer Medicine

Cancer is a disease of the body's cells. Our bodies are made up of millions of cells which normally grow and are renewed in a controlled way, and we remain healthy. However, sometimes this control is lost. This may be due to an abnormality in the cells, such as a genetic mutation or exposure to a carcinogen (cancer causing agent) and the cells start to multiply unchecked instead of just renewing themselves. A solid group of these cells is called a tumour or growth. Junction Health have specialised services to cater for skin cancer treatments


Travel Clinics

We offer a range of medical assessments relating to travel. You've booked your tickets and now you need advice on how to stay healthy whilst abroad. We can advise you on Travel Vaccinations, Malaria & Safety information.


Sexual Health Clinics

Junction Health provides sexual health clinics for the wider Central Otago Community. If you think you may have an STI you need to see your GP. Sexual health clinics provide a specialist, confidential, free of charge service to anyone under 22. If there is no clinic close to you contact us and we will put you in contact with someone.
