The COVID-19 Emergency has made General Practice review the way we work.
Be reassured that we are still open to provide services for you but the ways that you connect with us have changed
At Alert Level 1, we are able to offer normal general practice services. You can book for in-person, phone or video consultations with the doctor – just ask the receptionist when you book. You can also book routine appointments with our nurses for cervical smears, immunisations and other injections, dressings, health advice and other services.
When you arrive at the Medical Centre, we will still be asking you questions about respiratory illness and COVID contact – PLEASE BE HONEST with us about this – we do this to keep our staff and our community safe.
If you do have a respiratory illness, we will still see you, but we are managing these consultations in a different way. You will be placed on a call list, a doctor will call you back to check on your symptoms and then arrange for you to come to the clinic in the afternoon for an assessment and COVID swab (if required).
Remember to sanitise your hands on the way in, wear a mask if you have one and sign in using the QR code and NZ Tracer app or report to reception to be added to our daily register.
Remember, we are still here for you, but CALL US FIRST.
Flu Vaccines - update 12/4/21
We are pleased to advise that we now have Flu vaccines available for those aged 65 and over. We are running clinics for vaccines this week and next week - please ring reception for an appointment.
At present we can only offer vaccines to those age 65 and over - this is a Ministry of Health directive. It is likely that flu vaccines for others will not be available until some time in May - we will advise you as soon as we can.
