Albany Family Medical Centre

Albany Family Medical Centre has been functioning in the Albany area for over 30years, and together the doctors who work in the practice have over 150 years of General Practice experience. 

In December 2009 and again in June 2016 we were accredited by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners having successfully implemented an accreditation programme – Aiming for Excellence into the practice. The accreditation process supports Continuous Quality Improvement with the development of managerial, organizational and clinical systems as a method to achieve quality standards and promotes greater accountability to patients and other stakeholders.

As General Practitioners of many years experience, we believe that passing on expertise to the next generation to be of the utmost importance. Therefore, Albany Family Medical Centre functions as a teaching practice affiliated with the Goodfellow Unit of the Department of General Practice, University of Auckland. We regularly receive medical students towards the end of their training.  Please be aware that this commitment may involve, with your permission, having a medical student present during a consultation; this is, of course, entirely voluntary and it is perfectly acceptable for you to decline to have a student present if you wish.
