Smales Farm is open!

Shorecare Urgent Care Smales Farm

While Northcross is currently out of action for urgent care matters, Smales Farm is still running business as usual.
Sadly we are finding that some patients are waiting to come in and see us but leaving certain health conditions can be detrimental to your health.
Please be assured that we have taken measures to ensure your safety and ours.

Firstly you will be assessed by our screening clinician at the door.

Following this, you will either be taken into a room straight away, popped in our waiting room which has been given a social distancing makeover, or even asked to return to your car.

We are only taking PayWave payments or are invoicing to be paid online. No cash.

We have installed perspex screens for our receptionists and our staff have PPE available to them.

So please if you find yourself in need of urgent medical or accident care, pop in and see us at Smales Farm.

We are open 24/7. No appointment necessary.

The Story of Surfdale

The Team from Auckland Museum

Did you know that Surfdale in Waiheke Island received its name via a competition? The winner was awarded a section of land near the beach...

At 8 pence a day on top of a small deposit, a Surfdale section was also promoted as a sound investment – so close to downtown Auckland that “values must go up and up and up”.

Well, they weren't wrong there.

Today, Waiheke Island brings to mind sunny vineyards and beachy weekend getaways. The image of Waiheke as an “island paradise” has its origins in 1920s marketing, but the island has long been desirable even as its character has changed over the past centuries.

As we go into the long weekend and begin to venture further afield again, why not have a read of how Waiheke came to be the place it is today, in this blog about its recent history by our Project Curator, Jane Groufsky.

Living the dream

Colleen Hawkes Reporter from Homed

It's inspirational to meet a family that's taken the plunge to leave the rat race and establish themselves in the country. This couple not only managed to keep their jobs, but also build a stunning house on the Coromandel Peninsula that has caught the eye of NZIA judges.
