Serving an enrolled population of over 14000, we have 15 GPs working full and part-time, 19 practice nurses (including five Community Nurse Prescribers), five health care assistants, one health improvement practitioner, a health coach, 14 admin/receptionists, and a practice management team.
Although not an urgent care facility we offer an on the day service for the acutely unwell, including a dedicated drive-through clinic for those with symptoms of infectious disease. In addition, we offer free consults for those with high needs through a weekly GP Hauora Clinic and a Nurse Led offsite Outreach Clinic.
We aim to provide the highest quality health care for all, in an open and welcoming atmosphere where practice members work as a team and staff and patients feel valued and culturally safe.
We recognize that avoidable unfair and unjust differences in health outcomes are experienced by individuals due to attitudes towards perceived personal characteristics including but not limited to: age, colour, disability, education, employment status, ethical belief, ethnic or national origins, family status, gender identity, language, marital status, mental health or addiction status, past-offending, political opinion, race, religious or spiritual belief, sexual orientation and socio-economic circumstance.
We commit to achieving equitable outcomes for those affected by such attitudes and:
- recognise the status of Māori as tangata whenua of Aotearoa New Zealand and our obligations and responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi (the Treaty of Waitangi)
- challenge ourselves to identify and overcome implicit bias.
Contact reception to arrange a consultation and let us know if you require any special assistance. You may for instance have difficulty getting to or paying for your appointment or need the services of a translator or chaperone during your appointment. We are solutions focused and happy to help.
