We’re providing our service in a new way to ensure you and your whanau remain safe. We're doing our part to support the COVID-19 response so when you phone us or visit the clinic we will ask if you have any cough, cold, or flu-like symptoms or if you're concerned about COVID-19 - let us know. This doesn't mean we think you have coronavirus, it's simply a small step we're taking to ensure we continue to keep our community safe and healthy.

Our practice is safe to visit

Safety is our priority. We are doing testing for COVID-19 and it's done in your car where possible or in an isolation room if an assessment is required.

This means when you visit us for other medical issues you won’t be exposed in any way. We have strict infection prevention standards in place, meaning staff are regularly wiping surfaces and keeping the practice clean and germ-free.

Thanks for your patience and continued support.

Our Services

  • General Health and Wellness
  • Minor Surgery
  • Immunisations
  • Womens Health
  • Chronic Disease Management

Cervical Smears

Our practice nurses are trained in taking cervical smears. If you only need a smear test, you can book an appointment with a nurse. Some smear tests are subsidised by the Government, so please enquire about this.

Influenza Immunisation

The Influenza immunisation is recommended and currently subsidised by the Government for any person over 65 years old and any person with a chronic condition. Others may have the immunisation if they wish. The immunisation does not protect against the common cold, tonsillitis, sinusitis or bronchitis.

Travel Vaccinations

Make an appointment with one of our GPs to discuss travel immunisations and other required medications. The vaccinations will be ordered by the pharmacy. Please allow at least 6 weeks prior to travel to ensure you have time for a full course of immunisation.

Immunisations for Children

We recommend immunisation at 6 weeks, 3 months, 5 months, 15 months, 4 years, and 11 years of age in accordance with current National guidelines. We are happy to discuss benefits and risks with all parents. Please book an appointment with a Nurse.

Child Development Checks

Routine medical checks for children are recommended 6 weeks prior to immunisation, and also at 9 months, 2.5 years and 4 years of age. This is a normal Doctor's appointment.

Minor Surgery

All aspects of minor surgery are catered for, including removal of warts, moles and skin cancers. Cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen is usually available at the time of an initial appointment. For other surgery, an initial appointment is required for assessment of the condition.

Maternity Advice

Make an appointment with your GP to discuss pregnancy advice. Midwives are the leading providers of maternity care, however we do offer emergency advice if necessary. A list of local midwives is available at reception.

Contraception

An initial consultation for all contraception choices should be made with a GP. For repeat prescriptions of the pill, mini pill or depo injection, an appointment can be made with a nurse. Dr Patel, Caswell and Duley can insert IUCDs, and Dr Caswell, Duley and Mabidikama can insert the Jadelle and Mirena implants.

Blood and X-ray Results

We will only contact you if we receive an abnormal result. If we cannot contact you by phone, we will write to you. Please make sure that we have your up to date contact details at all times. If you would like your results, you are welcome to ring and speak to a nurse and if you remain unwell or are worried, please call and speak to one of our nurses. We also have an online option called “Manage my Health” which allows you to access your results on line.
