Appointments

Appointments are 15 minutes unless a longer appointment is requested.

Should you have multiple concerns that you wish to discuss in your appointment please request a double appointment and book this well in advance.  There is an extra charge for a double appointment however it will allow time for your doctor to address all your concerns in the one appointment.

Consultations for driver licence medicals, childhood immunisations, diabetes reviews, life insurances, minor surgery, travel consultations and immigration medicals need longer appointments, often with both the nurse and doctor.  Please let the reception know when you book an appointment for one of these so the appropriate times can be made.

Home visits may be organised in consultation with the doctor or nurse. Please phone and speak to the nurse if you think you require home visit.

Travel Consultations and immunisations

New Zealanders love to travel and expect to enjoy their overseas trip!  World Health Organisations guidelines recommend that travellers visit their health professional 6-8 weeks prior to departure.  This allows time for the vaccination schedules to be completed if needed.

Your doctor and practice nurse work together to plan vaccinations, medications and advise on other travel related issues such as your travel first aid kit, in the first instance please book a half hour appointment with your doctor.  It is worth noting that travel vaccines must be paid when we order them for you.
