BOOKING

Consultations are by appointment although urgent problems can be seen as needed. Each appointment is normally for 15 – 30  minutes. We appreciate a phone call if you are going to be late or need to change the time. If appointments are not kept without letting us know in reasonable time to re-book them, a fee may be charged.

It is very helpful if you can say whether your appointment is a particular need such as ACC, driver’s medical, cervical smear, complementary medicine, new baby 6wk check, etc so they can be fitted in appropriately. If you think you may need more time please ask for a longer appointment.

Training Doctors

We are accredited by  RNZCGP to train  GP registrars. GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who work in General Practice for 2 years under supervision in order to achieve specialisation as a General Practitioner. GP Registrars are supervised by one of the regular doctors at NEHC and will sometimes be present during a consultation.
We greatly appreciate your co-operation with this training programme.
