ITIES PROVIDE A HIGH STANDARD OF TREATMENT AND CARE. HOWEVER,
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT MEDICAL SERVICES ARE NOT FREE TO

DUTY DOCTORS SHOULD ILLNESS OCCUR. SHOULD VISITORS NEED DRUGS
OR PHARMACEUTICAL SUPPLIES AFTER NORMAL SHOPPING HOURS THEY
SHOULD REFER TO THE URGENT PHARMACIES LISTING IN THE LOCAL
TELEPHONE DIRECTORY OR CHECK WITH THEIR HOTEL RECEPTION.

THERE ARE NO SNAKES OR DANGEROUS WILD ANIMALS IN NEW ZEALAND.
SANDFLIES CAN BE A PROBLEM IN SOME AREAS, BUT THESE CAN BE
EFFECTIVELY COUNTERED BY THE USE OF AN INSECT REPELLENT.
