We are working on ways to alleviate this, in the meantime to ease the pressure, we ask that you  •  book your routine appointments 2-3 weeks in advance and •  order your prescriptions early, always keep 3-4 weeks of medication on hand and •   join Manage My Health to communicate directly with your Doctor, order your scripts and book routine appointments.

Updated roster for our doctors at our beach

clinic  -  effective Tuesday 29th October

2019

We have had some changes to the times (and days) that our doctors are working at our Beach clinic at 43 Te Moana Road.  Click here. As you can imagine in any health centre, there are often challenging logistics to ensure optimum accessibility to doctors and nurses.  Our beach clinic was built to extend accessibility for our patients and their whanau.  Changes are as follows – Dr Andrew Edwards is adding an afternoon session on Tuesdays to his Monday morning session   Dr Dermot O’Connor is shifting to a Thursday afternoon (from a Monday afternoon) Dr Jared Cook is shifting to a Tuesday morning (from a Tuesday afternoon) Dr John Clarke is shifting to a Monday afternoon (from a Wednesday morning) Dr Romain Kuhm is shifting to a Thursday afternoon (from a Wednesday afternoon) Dr Diane Carter is shifting her base to the beach clinic, although is keeping a session on Friday mornings at our main clinic) Dr Anne-Christine Poracchia-Kuhm is shifting her base to the beach clinic, although will be scheduling appointments at our main clinic on Monday afternoons Dr Maryanne Ting is adding a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon session to her existing full day Friday session. Dr Hanna Preston is scaling back her sessions at the beach to a Thursday morning Dr Herman van Kradenburg retains his Thursday morning session Dr Anouk Balster continues to be based at the beach clinic, but does do a regular session in our Urgent Care Unit in our main clinic We appreciate that working out which doctor is working from where, and when, can be frustrating, so we have set up a schedule of where the doctors are working. Click here for the schedule of which doctors works where, and when. Text Messaging We are now able to send out text messages to people with a mobile phone who have given us permission to do so. We use text messages to remind you of an extended appointment you have booked and also to let you know when your laboratory results are in or when something you have requested is ready to be collected. We don't routinely text about prescriptions, or regular appointments as there are just too many. If you consent to text messaging please let one of our Receptionists know.
