Enrolment

Choosing to enrol in our care brings with it responsibility on both our parts. As enrolment attracts funding from the state, it is the responsibility of Coast to Coast Health Care to provide you with quality primary healthcare which is as low cost to you as possible. But in return, it is the responsibility of the person enrolling to use our services - for not to do so, will involve the transfer of funds from our service to that which you use, thus compromising our capacity to keep the cost to you low.

Clearly there are times when using our service is not possible (e.g. while away on holiday). When this happens, the GP you see will forward a copy of your visit records to keep us informed. 

We provide 24 /7 care to our patients and provide on call services from 8pm till 8am daily.

We  offer a PATIENT PORTAL " MANAGE MY HEALTH" available for you to access your personal health records, consultations and test results  via an APP  MMH.  To access this you will need to complete a consent form which is included in an ENROLMENT form. Via this portal you can request repeat prescriptions if we have  previously prescribed these and you do not need to be seen. We can send messages to your personal email address to keep you informed and in touch. Recalls can also be sent via this portal.

We try to roster doctors at their medical centres but at times with afterhours cover we may not always have your preferred GP available, and at these times there will be another GP to continue to provide you with health care.

We are a TEACHING PRACTICE and will have House Officers and Registrars who are completing their General Practice training at clinics with teachers providing support. At times we will also have medical students and you will be asked ahead of time if you consent to consult with them ahead of your GP visit.

Adult and Child Medical Care

Your GP's surgery is far more than a place to go when you are feeling unwell and needing a quick cure. The doctor who sees you has gone through an extensive medical training to equip her or him to help children and adults of all ages with a range of physical and emotional difficulties. GPs are at the centre of the healthcare hub and will be aware of services and expertise that are available locally and further-a-field. GPs are also aware of the link that stress and unhappy life events have on physical health so know when to suggest a talking therapy rather than medication.

Repeat Prescriptions

Each GP surgery or primary care practice will have its own procedure for repeat prescribing but the following rules are common to most, if not all. Patients who are well-known to the practice who have a stable condition like asthma, hypertension or diabetes could be allowed to get a repeat prescription for up to six months. Repeat prescriptions are never given to patients who are not known to the practice and there is probably a blanket ban on repeats for narcotics and other drugs that could be misused as doctors are expected to monitor these drugs carefully. All requests for Repeat Prescriptions are now booked with either a Prescribing Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Pharmacist and or Nurse Prescriber. Please make an appointment to complete this. We DO NOT complete prescription requests if we are not your usual doctor or practice as we do not have your medical records . This only applies to REGULAR MEDICATIONS and the guide is they will be completed within a consultation with your GP via telephone, in person or via Video. The service will depend on your health condition and you may be required to attend a face to face consultation. Scripts may not be completed without this following any hospitalisations with changes that need to be monitored . We do not complete or redo scripts on behalf of another health provider. The cost of these is $19.50. Please request your script via your patient portal via MMH App (Manage MY Health). Notify us of the pharmacy you wish to pick this up from. If you are not registered for this please call in to the centre and enrol. This portal is our preferred communication channel and saves phone calls and your request is saved within your medical records. This is available the same as online banking 24 hours day and may save time. The cost of these is $15.00. E Scripts (electronic) from May 2020 are now the normal mechanism and will be sent via the internet to the pharmacy of your choice, or the local pharmacy. Once this has been completed this cannot be changed, or a new E script will need to be requested and charged. Any scripts requested will incur a fee equal to your usual medical consultation fee, and if not collected or required are still considered a completed service. All unpaid fees may then incur an additional administration fee of $10.00. For any outstanding balances a prescription may be refused (prescriptions are not an urgent service). Payment is expected to be completed within 10 days of the request. An invoice will be sent via your email address.

Lab Results

Sometimes your doctor needs to take a sample of blood or urine either to discover what is wrong with you or to measure something in your blood so that the right medication is given to you. These tests could be anything from blood sugar to a full blood count or a sample of tissue to test for cancer. While urine can generally be tested in the surgery, blood and other specimens are usually sent away for testing at a laboratory. Most results come back within 48 hours unless a very rare test is needed which has to go to a specialist lab further away when it might take a little longer. Medical laboratory collection is provided at our northern clinics for our enrolled patients. For non enrolled and any specialist requests there is a charge of $10.00 for tests completed. As this is a courtesy service, a Koha to support this would be well appreciated. Wellsford Medical Centre: Monday - Friday: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm (Free) Emergency and acute blood tests or "Point of contact" testing for some investigations completed at Wellsford Medical Centre only. Mangawhai: Tuesday & Thursday: 8:30 am – 12.00 midday Maungaturoto: Monday to Friday: 8:30 am – 12.00 midday Paparoa: Tuesday & Thursday: do not complete blood tests Snells Beach: We recommend Labtest at Warkworth, who are contracted to provide this service Matakana: Daily: We recommend Labtest at Warkworth who are contracted to provide this service Courier timetables restrict tests to these times to go back to Labtests in Auckland.

Liquid Nitrogen

Liquid nitrogen is a fast, effective treatment provided in many practices to treat viral warts, sun damaged skin, skin tags and many benign cosmetic lesions. It comes in a container with a nozzle and is usually applied by swab or spray. Often one treatment is all that is needed but sometimes it may need repeating after two weeks. Because it cannot be stored for too long, you will often find that your GP will treat a number of patients one after the other. For more information click here. The cost of each visit is the liquid nitrogen fee ( $15.00 per scoop ) plus the administration or nursing fee for the subsequent visits as prescribed by the clinician.

Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC)

LARC methods are very effective at preventing unplanned pregnancy and are “fit and forget” forms of contraception – you don’t need to remember them every day or every month. LARC methods: Intrauterine Contraceptive Devices (IUCD or IUD) are inserted through the cervix into a woman’s uterus. IUCDs may be either hormonal (Mirena® or Jaydess® ) or non-hormonal (copper IUCD). Jadelle® is a hormone-releasing implant that is inserted just under the skin of the upper arm. Depending on the type of device, it will need to be changed after between three and ten years. Read more about LARC methods here MIRENA: This service is provided by doctors . Please request this when booking the appointment.

  • Implant (Jadelle) inserts
  • IUD inserts
  • Free or subsidised contraception services (enquire for eligibility and details)
  • Implant (Jadelle) removal

Cervical Screening

All women and people with a cervix aged 25 – 69 who have ever had intimate skin-to-skin contact or been sexually active should have regular cervical screening. This includes women who have been immunised against HPV. Together, regular screening and HPV immunisation provide the best protection against cervical cancer. There are now more options for how you have cervical screening done: a simple vaginal swab test for HPV, either done yourself or with help from a healthcare professional a cervical sample taken by a healthcare professional (used to be known as a smear test). Talk with your healthcare provider to decide which option is best for you. If HPV is found, you may need to have a follow-up test or be referred directly for colposcopy. If you’ve not yet had HPV testing, you should be screened 3 years after your last test (or 1 year if immune deficient). Once you have had an HPV test, and providing HPV is not found, your next screening will be in 5 years (or 3 years if immune deficient). For more information: Cervical screening | Time to Screen - National Screening Unit Please advsise the Receptionist of your request for this service when booking your appoitment . Most of our doctors provide this service at all clinics , but please check . A Chaperone service is available to all women. We also have nurse trained smear takers, , who you can book in with also. HPV Swabs , self swabbing is available from 23rd September 2023 .Your doctor or nurse will advise if you can complete this instead of a Cervical swab and the process is quick and simple and may be funded for you with eligibility criteria set by Te Whatu Ora.

Spirometry

Spirometry is a tool that measures how effectively your lungs are working. It is able to show how much air lungs are able to hold (their volume) and how much air can be breathed in and out (inhaled and exhaled) which is called flow. This tool is used to assess damage caused by conditions like COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – a group that includes bronchitis and emphysema), pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis and asthma. Results are shown on a graph called a pneumotachograph. For more information click on the following link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirometry This is booked in and mostly available only at the Wellsford Medical Centre by appointment with nursing staff.

Travel Advice / Immunisations

Another service offered to you at your GP surgery (primary care practice) is advice and immunisation before you go to another country.

Well Child/Tamariki Ora Health Checks – Birth to Three Years

All New Zealand children are entitled to 11 free health checks from birth to three years. The checks aim to ensure that children are growing and developing as well as possible. Included in the checks are clinical assessment, health education and family/whanau support. Baby checks are at birth and then at 24 hours, five days and around 2-4 weeks. Babies are weighed and measured to ensure that they are developing correctly. These sessions provide a great opportunity for parents to ask questions from an expert and have any problem addressed; difficulties with breastfeeding or sleep for example. They can also be used to discuss immunisations and vaccinations. These checks will be carried out by your lead maternity carer (LMC). Between the ages of 4-6 weeks and three years, there are seven core health checks available, typically these are around 4-6 weeks, 8-10 weeks, 3-4 months, 5-7 months, 9-12 months, 15-18 months and 2-3 years. These checks may be carried out by a Well Child Provider of your choice e.g. Plunket, Maori health provider, community nurse, a general practice team (doctor and practice nurse). Your LMC will be able to give you a list of Well Child Providers in your area. More information about Well Child services is available on the Ministry of Health website.
