Flu Vaccine Shortages
You may have seen the latest news, that supplies of this year's flu vaccine are running low. As a result, health providers are being advised to limit vaccinations to the most vulnerable and patients who are considered by the MOH to be high risk. Please contact the practice if you have any questions.
The Doctors Napier, founded in 1989, provides a complete family and urgent general practice service. We are open every day of the year, except Christmas Day, as well as providing on-call backup outside of our normal opening hours.
To provide you with more doctor appointments we are adjusting our walk-in system to be reserved for urgent/acute medical problems. This will free up more doctor appointments for your health problems that are of a less urgent or serious nature i.e problems that are not new problems and are not causing you serious pain or making you feel very unwell or worried.
To help us with this process, we will always have a nurse available to talk to you and assess your symptoms and concerns and arrange the best care for you.
- If you are not sure if you need urgent attention, please call us on 06 835 4696 or come in and seek advice from our nursing team who are trained and able to provide free health assessment
- Urgent doctor consultations will only be available to patients who have been assessed by our nursing team and found to need 'on the day' care and will be for your urgent problem only
- We also encourage all patients who have access to email, to register on the online Manage My Health programme This will enable you to request repeat prescriptions, review test results, book appointments and in some instances, communicate with your GP or nurse. Please ask about this at reception.
In addition to the full range of primary care provided at The Doctors Napier and recently refurbished and expanded The Doctors Greenmeadows, we offer a number of additional services, including nurse-led health clinics and programmes giving patients expert guidance, support, or treatment. For patient convenience, we are also home to a physiotherapist, x-ray, midwives and pharmacy. All our systems are fully computerised, allowing us to access test results directly from the laboratory. We are also contracted to provide health services to the students and staff at Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT).
