Providing Friendly and quality healthcare from our family to yours
To protect our patients, we are providing consultations to patients on a 'virtual first' basis.
This means all new consults booked in level 3 & 4 will be assumed to be a virtual consult, by phone or video consult (doxy.me) unless a 'in person' requested and discussed with your GP.
Prescriptions can now be emailed direct to your pharmacy of choice, and lab forms can also be sent electronically to path lab.
We are using email and text to communicate - we would appreciate letting us know if you have updated your mobile number.
Any person symptomatic with a respiratory illness and triaged to be requiring assessment will be seen outside either in the car, or our new cabin outside the ambulance bay.
If you are unwell or have injured yourself we are continuing to provide an urgent clinic every morning between 9am -12 noon. All calls are triaged by the GP in the clinic and you will be asked to come in for examination if required. All persons with respiratory symptoms that meet the COVID-19 case definition will be offered a swab, or referred to the nearest community based assessment centre (CBAC). Please note we are required to notify public health of all patients who are being swabbed.
Please visit the Ministry of Health website here for up to date information. (This is updated daily)
FLU VACCINES are now available to the >65 and those with chronic medical conditions, and pregnant women. Flu clinic appointments are available by contacting reception by phone or email.
For all patients enrolled at Waihi Family Doctors
