NCX has significantly reduced fees for ACC exams for all valid Community Service Card holders and children under 14 – see Fees page

North Canterbury X-ray (NCX) operates a highly-professional medical X-ray clinic in the centre of Rangiora – a locally owned and operated service with dedicated staff, working efficiently with your own GP to bring you fast and friendly attention and results just when you need it most. Easy parking – no need to travel to the city!

X-ray Service

NCX undertakes all general medical x-rays referred by your GP or other qualified health professional utilizing the very latest equipment and highly trained staff to meet your needs – from a fractured little finger through to a full skeletal examination.

A visit to your own Doctor will determine what x-ray you require, provide a Referral form and
decide whether your x-ray examination will be performed under:

  • ACC (the patient pays a partial surcharge but the majority of the cost is covered by ACC)
  • Community Referred Radiology (no charge to the patient - fully funded by Canterbury District Health Board)
  • Privately (the patient pays the full cost)

We also do immigration chest x-rays.


foot and hand xray


Your medical referrer will decide whether your x-ray will be performed under ACC, Community Referred Radiology or privately. There is no patient charge for Community Referred Radiology, a patient surcharge for all ACC and full charge for any private exams.

Charges at our clinic are very similar to clinics in Christchurch – often slightly cheaper – and with reduced travel costs. We ask that fees are fully paid at the time of your visit but may make exceptions for special circumstances.

Hello all North Cantabrians 

Yes — we are OPEN. 

NCX is here for you during the pandemic. We are fully operational for X- Rays in Rangiora. 

We have enhanced protection from infection for you in our premises. We will perform your examination ‘in isolation’.

Your GP has a ‘hotline’ to us for any necessary X-rays, all done near-immediately during the crisis. And all X-ray reports are also being sent directly to the hospital at present. 

Most X-rays are free to you, but for those incurring an ACC charge, we continue to slash the fee for under 14s and holders of Community Services Cards.

Continuing to keep you safe and cared for during these times.

We are in this together - your friendly team at NCX.
