Flu Vaccines

Flu AheadThe  Ministry of Health have decided to extend funding for Flu Vaccinations until the end of August as it appears that influenza has not peaked this season.

Our only protection is immunization.

Please phone reception to make an appointment.

Flu vaccinations are free if:

  • You are over 65 years
  • You are pregnant
  • You have a chronic condition
  • Non funded vaccines cost $22.

Please phone reception to make an appointment.

Flu like illness

If you are unwell with a flu like illness, which includes abdominal Illnesses, please feel free to phone the Health Centre for advice.

We may advise that we do not need to see you, however  you will speak with a nurse who make that decision.

Some conditions can deteriorate quickly from complications. Other times it is a matter of taking adequate pain relief, increasing fluid intake and getting lots of rest whilst letting the disease take its course.

Telephone Prescriptions

Just a reminder there is a charge for phone prescriptions – this can be paid online or at the health Centre



Whilst we acknowledge that sometimes you may need to wait for sometime to see the Doctor, we ask that you are on time for your appointment. If you are late and we are fully booked  the doctor or nurse may not be able to see you that day and you may need to make another appointment.
We try to ensure that there aren’t too many delays for you – however as the doctors and nurses often have to deal with emergencies or urgent situations delays can happen.
If you think your appointment may need longer than 10-15 minutes please ask for a double appointment when you book.

Immigration Medicals

We are now unable to see people for Immigration medicals.
