Medical consultation for foreign residents in Niigata



There will be the "Medical Consultation Room for foreign residents" in Niigata Catholic Church on Sunday, 7 th June from 11 am to 4 pm. The consultation will be organised by a committee of medical volunteers led by Dr.Fukushima of Terao parish and the Niigata branch of Catholic Doctors Association. Number of volunteers including doctors, nurses and medical students will support the activities. Also they have managed to hire a X-ray check-up-bus for the day.

The consultation will be free of charge, though they will not be able to provide you immediate medical treatment at the spot according to Japanese medical regulation. Instead of the medical treatment at the spot, doctors will give you a necessary information to visit clinics or hospitals near by your residents. They will also provide you a urine test and a X ray check-up. Translation service in English, Chinese, Tagalog, and Russian will be available.

Visit the consultation at Niigata Catholic Church, the Christ the King Cathedral in Higashi-ohata-dori. The nearest bus stop is "Nishi-ohata" or you may easily walk from any "Furu-machi" bus stops towards to sea side. You may also join Japanese Sunday Mass at 9:30 am before the consultation at 11 am.
