Fees

Current fees for normal GP consultations (from 1/7/15)

Fees vary with the time taken and the nature of the problem.  Some procedures attract a higher fee.  When the Government or ACC pays a portion of your fee on your behalf, this amount is deducted before you are charged. Fees are also dependent on your enrolment status with the Primary Health Organisation.  We are members of Te Awakairangi PHO. 

Our enrolled patients are entitled to more subsidies than those who are visitors or casual patients.
