Appointments

Routine consultations are scheduled for 15 minutes.  Appointments can be made by

·      Online booking through ManageMyHealth at any time for routine GP appointments

·      Phone 04 920 1800 between 8.00am -5.00pm Monday to Friday.  When phoning, please advise in general terms the reason for your appointment, this helps us facilitate an appropriate appointment for you

Some doctors have evening clinics to enable you to see your doctor  outside normal business hours.

Consultations requiring longer time need to be booked at least one week ahead e.g. Minor Surgery, Insurance Medicals, Six Week Baby Checks.

It is advisable for you to phone a few days in advance for routine, non-urgent appointments. 

If your appointment is urgent, we will see you on the day, but you may not see the doctor of your choice.

We have a large team of doctors and you are encouraged to identify with one doctor as this helps to build rapport and promote continuity of care.  As your doctor will be away at various times, if you have long-term health conditions, it is beneficial if you have a second doctor you know and can see in your doctor’s absence.

Nurse clinics are open Mon-Fri 8.45am – 5.00pm and on Saturday mornings for routine appointments.
