These prices are for enrolled, funded patients. 

There is a $20 surcharge for appointments on Saturday.

Phone and video consultations are the standard consult fee

 

Referral/form completion fee $30.00
 

Extra Services

You can request repeats of your regular medications by calling or leaving a voicemail message with our nursing team, which are usually ready in 48 hours.

Urgent prescriptions are usually ready in 24 hours. If we have any queries about your script, we will call you back. 

Please note that all repeat script requests will only be done at the prescribing Doctor's discretion. 

Some types of services (e.g. Driver's Licences, Diving Medicals, Employment Medicals) may be charged at a higher rate as we do not receive Ministry of Health funding for this, and may require extra time for paperwork and form completion. Please let our receptionist know at the time of booking.

Payment

Payment is required at the time of consultation. Late payments will incur extra charges. We accept cheque, EFTPOS, Visa and Mastercard (please note that credit card payments have a 1.5% surcharge). We do not accept cash.

We also accept online banking transfers. Our account number is: 12-3252-0058771-00. Please use your name as the reference.

Appointments

It has been widely publicised that New Zealand currently has a shortage of healthcare workers.

 

Our practice has also been affected as doctors and nurses have relocated outside Auckland and on some occasions, New Zealand. This has left us with staffing shortages and recruitment for new doctors is ongoing.

 

Please be aware that same day appointments may not be possible due to reduced availability.

 

We ask that you treat our remaining staff with kindness and respect.
