Latest News & Updates
Unfortunately due to the impact of covid and winter viruses on our staff, some of our services are currently reduced. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Due to staff shortages and very high demand, we are currently unable to accept walk-ins at any particular time during the day. Our Casualty department is open to treat on-the-day accidents and urgent medical issues, but please contact first 07 8720300, so you can be given an approximate time to come to Casualty. Patients with most urgent medical need will be treated first, so allow some waiting time.
Lab test results: Test results are reviewed by your GP. If needed, our GP or nurse will contact you to advise next steps. If you do not hear from us, there is nothing to discuss in your lab test results.
We are unable to provide self-test RAT kits for you to take home. Please visit the Waikato DHB website for up to date information on how and where to obtain RAT tests.
You can request a telephone consult instead of a face-to-face consult with your GP - it may be more convenient for you, and costs the same. Please ask at time of booking.
At our clinic, all patients will continue to be screened and everyone must wear a mask on our premises.
Covid testing is available at our clinic (Supervised RAT tests). Phone ahead to book a time as we are very busy and are not able to accept walk-ins. Phone us on 07 872 0300 to arrange a time and to receive instructions from our receptionist. If you are not enrolled with us, you will need to complete a casual enrolment form before being tested.
At the moment, all repeat prescriptions will be sent directly to your preferred pharmacy, so please advise this when you order your script or speak to our script nurse. Please also provide your up to date contact phone number with any phone messages.
COVID VACCINATIONS: We are currently giving covid vaccinations by appointment for anyone 5 years or older. Contact us on 07 8720300 to book. Note that our appointment times are NOT available on the BookMyVaccine.nz website.
We have a fracture clinic every Wednesday afternoon. Book for your follow ups: fractures, sports & other injuries, strains, etc. See our experienced GPs Dr Frances Stringfellow or Dr Alison Glover to keep your recovery on track.
COVID-19 warning: If you have cough, fever, flu-like symptoms including aches or loss of smell, please DO NOT ENTER the clinic. Stay in your car or at home and phone us on 07 872 0300. We will either send a clinician out to see you in the carpark, or advise you what to do next.
We are open Saturday mornings from 9am-12pm (a surcharge applies on Saturdays, and also Community Service Card discounts do not apply on Saturdays).
Women's Health Clinic - Dr Mary Ballantyne and Dr Jo Vipond and our specialised nurses are available for consultations on mid-life & menopause, family planning and sexual health. Contact reception now to book an appointment. This clinic is available weekly on Monday and Wednesday afternoon/evenings until 6pm.
