Coast To Coast Health Care
Primary Healthcare Service
Minor surgery is commonly provided in primary care practices, providing fast, competent removal and biopsies of skin lesions. Other services include cosmetic work such as removal of benign moles and skin tags. Ingrown toenail surgery is also commonly provided.
These conditions do not need to be referred to a hospital, perhaps saving you a long wait or a cancelled appointment when a more serious case takes priority.
If your doctor is unable to provide the procedure you need, he/she may know a neighbouring GP who does. Otherwise, the PHO will have a list of GPs trained in particular operations.
Minor surgery in a theatre room for minor local surgery procedures completed by GPs at Wellsford Medical Centre.
Assessment by a doctor needs to be completed prior to booking the surgery. There is a deposit on booking this of 50% of the cost paid at the time.
Please book this for extended appointments of 30 minutes or as directed by the referring GP.
Small surgery procedures provided by Maungaturoto Clinic, Mangawhai Clinic and Snells Beach, Matakana and Paparoa Clinic.
