NEW PATIENTS WELCOME
Carlijn, Catherine and Erik are accepting new patients.
Peter, David, Judy, Christine, and Lynnette have full books and are unable to accept new patients at present.

This is a brief outline of the personalised medical, nursing and reception services available to you at our medical centre, along with some information about our staff and our facilities.

Our practice, situated in Drury, is at the southern border of Papakura and lies north of the Franklin District. It is where town meets country.

Our staff work together closely to ensure that we can provide the best possible primary health services for you.

Our doctors and nurses are qualified and registered medical professionals with the knowledge and skills to provide patient-centred, personal, family, whanau and community orientated, comprehensive primary medical care to all of our patients in a professional, friendly and courteous manner.

We have a Practice Clinical Assistant to assist and communicate with our clinical team.

Our clinical team is also wonderfully supported by our reception and administration team.

Our receptionists are pivotal people in our medical practice, as they are our patients' and visitors' first point of contact. They assist and communicate with clinical staff to co-ordinate our services and help prioritise workflows and manage patient expectation.

We want our patients to feel that they have been dealt with in a friendly, courteous manner and that all that can be done for them has been done.
