Video and Phone Consultations

Throughout COVID-19 we have found different ways to continue delivering the best health care and advice for you and your whanau - including the introduction of secure video and phone consultations.

Personal phone and video consultations are proving to be very effective and we've found most of our patients are enjoying these options. We are also finding that most health issues can be managed very well this way. Having a virtual consult will save you travel time and any wait time once you get there, plus you can still see and/or talk with your doctor or nurse. It brings your care closer to home.

If your normal GP or medical centre is closed during COVID-19, give us a call 09-275 9977, we can also do a phone consultation to help you.

Follow-up health checks, usually annually, are the best way to be sure your employees’ health is not being affected by their work – helping you keep your valuable staff, and avoid expensive litigation.

The health checks outlined under pre-employment medicals above can also be carried out on an annual basis, signed off by a qualified health professional, so you have the records you need now and in the future.

Immunisation
