Car Park

The car park entrance may be out of action around the 13th  November as the old surface is being replaced. Contractors will be digging up the old car park so please look before driving in. The new car park will be available but please be careful around the exit as it may also be the entrance at times.

Building Alterations November 2017

The new extension is coming along well and we moved in to the new rooms after Labour weekend. We have yet to complete the waiting room but it has been opened up and is much lighter and brighter. We will also be painting the inside of the rest of the building. 

This is an exciting project which is expected to be completed by Christmas and we apologise for any inconvenience during this time.

Appointment Reminders

We now have an automatic text reminder system which will send you a text message at 3pm the day before your appointment. Please keep us up to date with your mobile phone number.

Staff Update

From June 2016 to December 2017 we will have a registrar Dr Don Ponnamperuma with us. Registrars are working under a General Practice training programme and have usually worked in the hospital system before joining us. Registrars are available to see patients of all doctors.

 

Blood Pressure & Weight Checks

Do it yourself! We have had our machine for over a year now and it is very easy to use. You are welcome to pop in at any time and use the machine for checking your height and weight and/or your blood pressure. The reception staff can help you the first time.

Travel Vaccinations

If you are heading overseas and need to check on the vaccinations needed you can make an appointment with Nurse Sue to discuss this. We carry limited stocks so make sure you look into this well before you go away.
