YOSS is a free service for anyone aged from 10 to 24 years. We have a whole range of ways to help out young people who live in Palmerston North.
Health service – Doctor & Nurses

We can see you for everything you would normally access a health service for, including:
- Contraception and Sexual health
- Skin Conditions
- Work/sporting injuries

Plus loads more! If in doubt check it out with us, if we can’t help with your health condition, we will definitely be able to point where to go to get it sorted
