If you are 65 and over, pregnant or have a chronic condition you may qualify for a FREE Flu Vaccine.

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.

We provide a comprehensive, convenient, and very affordable family general practice healthcare service, with pharmacy, radiology department, eye specialists and child care centre onsite as well. We offer a number of specialised programmes, including immunisations, travel vaccinations, ongoing screening for breast and cervical cancer, and wellness and health ageing clinics.

Minor surgery including circumcisions are available along with traditional Chinese acupuncture, and we provide a GP service for residential care facilities. We are fully computerised, allowing us to access laboratory results straight from the lab, and as part of National Hauora Coalition PHO, we can keep our patient fees at a very affordable level. Our staff speak ten different languages including Mandarin and Cantonese.
