Measles Update & Key Information

There are currently outbreaks of measles in New Zealand, and Auckland is particularly affected.

Click here for the most recent updates and information from the Auckland Regional Public Health Service. 

If you think you have measles, stay home and call your doctor or Healthline on 0800 611 116.  Healthline operates 24/7 and has a translator service available.  

If you do go to your medical centre, wait and call from outside - you must not sit in the waiting room.


 

We are now accepting new enrolments - for a limited time, when you enrol as a new patient, you will get your 30 minute first visit at half price!

Patient Charges

About Our Fees

The Cost of Health Care

Providing health care services does unfortunately come at a cost, including wages, building costs and medical supplies.

We do however understand that health care can be expensive, and we will always endeavour to ensure you are benefiting from any funded services that you are eligible for.  Healthcare in New Zealand is a mixture of free services and subsidised services (where you pay a fee to cover some of the costs). 

Free and subsidised care is only available to New Zealand residents, with exceptions in some cases for visitors from countries like the UK and Australia. (This is because these countries have reciprocal agreements with New Zealand.)

Please ask our reception team if you think you may be entitled to a funded service for your visit.

Useful Information About Our Fees

  • Payment is due at time of consultation
  • All non-enrolled patients will be required to pre-pay for services
  • Some services will incur additional fees depending on the time and nature of your visit
  • A standard GP consultation is 15 minutes - please book a double appointment if you have lots to discuss
  • There may be a charge for any additional time with the doctor
  • Our practice nurses are skilled professionals and there is a fee when you see them for advice or services
  • If you are enrolled with us and your matter is not ACC related or acute, it is more beneficial for you to be seen in a GP appointment.  If we can offer you a GP appointment within 24 hours, we encourage you to book this as it will be cheaper for you
  • Additional procedure charges may also apply
  • If you have a Community Services Card, you may be eligible for a reduced consultation or prescription fee

Faye Hatfield

Medical Centre Manager

I have spent a number of years in primary care, and my health care journey started on the Hibiscus Coast over 10 years ago.  I have since worked on the North Shore, and before joining the team at Red Beach in September 2018, I spent four years as the practice manager at a large West Auckland medical centre.  

I have a passion for health care, and I strive to provide a high level of support, to the environment in which I work, it's team members, and the patients we care for.

I enjoy the challenges that a busy clinic like Red Beach brings!

I love travelling with my husband-to-be, and like getting lost in a good book.  I have two lovely grown-up daughters, and more recently have been blessed with a beautiful granddaughter!

Patch has moved to Whangaparaoa, which means a new challenge with The Doctors Red Beach, and hopefully less time fighting against the traffic!

Away from work, Patch loves to sail and hopes the Peninsula will provide some new opportunities for that.  He has four boys, some now overseas, and is enjoying setting up a new home here with his wife, Louise, and two Shitzu-Poodle 'fur kids'.
