Flu vaccinations 2018
Flu vaccines are now available! If you missed the Saturday flu clinics you can book an appointment during the week with a nurse.
We are also holding clinics for the shingles vaccine. This is now funded for people aged 65 – 80. Please note that we prefer to do these at a separate time to flu vaccinations.
Building Alterations April 2018
The building alterations are now complete! We hope that everyone is enjoying the extra space in the waiting room and the new décor.
We would like to acknowledge our builders, Takahe Construction and our designers O’Donnell & Cameron Design. They were great to work with and have done an excellent job.
This is our new children’s area:

From December 2017 to June 2018 we will have a registrar Dr John Irvine 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.
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.
See the Travel Vaccination page to download an information form.
