Serving Te Awamutu
and the greater Waikato

At Te Awamutu Medical Centre, you’ll find a team of friendly, welcoming doctors and health professionals to help you and your whanau/family.

We deliver an extensive range of healthcare services.

In addition to GP services, we provide a clinical pharmacist, nurse-led services, visiting specialists, and a drop-in urgent care clinic. Within the building you’ll find physiotherapy, ultrasound, x-ray and pharmacy services, and Pathlab next door.

Latest News & Updates

Flu shots are available now. Contact us now to book a time to get yours. You can also just drop in to get a flu shot with no appointment, but you may need to wait a short while. This year you can also get the latest covid booster at the same time as your flu vaccine.

From March 2024, we are offering a new secure online payment method for repeat script orders, phone consultations and outstanding fees. This will be available to you if you have a credit or debit card. You may receive an email or text from TA Medical Centre with a link to the payment instructions. If you are unsure and wish to check that the link is safe, please feel free to call our reception to verify that it is genuine.

To ensure we deliver the best quality care to you that we can, our GPs are working to a 'one main problem' per 15-minute consultation policy. Please discuss with your GP at the start of your consultation, what your most important issue/s is/are. If the GP is unable to deal with all your health issues in one appointment, they will ask you to book a later appointment to deal with unaddressed matters. Thank you for understanding while we work to provide fair access to quality care for all our patients.

If you cannot attend or do not need your booked appointment, please contact us to cancel it. This makes the appointment available to others. Your help is much appreciated at this very busy time. 

Due to a shortage of clinical staff and in the interests of safety for our staff and patients, we are now closed on Saturday mornings until further notice.   

Unfortunately, due to high demand and a reduced staff, some of our services are reduced and processing of repeat prescriptions is taking longer than usual. Please order repeat scripts 2-3 working days in advance. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Our Casualty department is open to treat on-the-day accidents and urgent medical issues on a walk-in basis. Patients with the most urgent medical need will be treated first, so wait times will change throughout the day. Our nurses and reception staff will advise you of current wait times.

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.

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.

Currently, repeat prescriptions can be sent directly to your preferred pharmacy OR printed and picked up from our reception. Please advise which of these options you prefer when you order your script or speak to our script nurse. Please also provide your contact phone number when you leave a phone message.

We have a fracture clinic every Wednesday afternoon. Book your follow ups for: fractures, sports & other injuries, strains, etc. See our experienced GP Dr Alison Glover to keep your recovery on track.  

We are accepting new patients. Start your enrolment online or enrol at our reception kiosk. If you are coming to the practice to enrol, call first on 07 872 0300 and we'll tell you what you need to bring with you.

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.

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.

We welcome your feedback and would like you to contact us if you have any concerns or questions, or if you wish to make a complaint about the care you have received. Please feel free to email, write, make a phone call or speak to one of our receptionists in person at any time, and they will assist you or direct you to the appropriate person to receive your enquiry.
