Description

The team at Ellerslie strive to provide high quality medical and nursing care in a friendly, accessible environment.

From March 2018 we will be offering a dual appointment/ walk-in service.  Each day, there will be two doctors on duty for appointments, and one doctor on duty for walk-in service.  This roster varies from day to day.

You are able to book 15 minute appointments (one patient only per 15 minutes) on-line through our patient portal or by calling us on 09-5796147. If you are late for your appointment, you will have the option of joining the queue for the walk-in doctor. If you wish to book a double appointment (at a double fee), or two appointments for two family members, please phone our reception team to arrange this. We also offer appointments for minor surgery for skin lesions, Zoledronate and Iron Infusions, and 6 week baby checks and immunisations with our nurses.   

We are excited to provide a patient portal, Health 365. This will give you access to your test results, medical conditions, allergies, online requests for prescriptions, and appointments. There is no extra cost to you for this service. You can find out more on our website www.ellersliemedical.co.nz/patient-portal. Please enrol in person at the practice.

New patients are welcome to enrol in person between 8am and 5.30pm, or via our website contact form https://www.ellersliemedical.co.nz/enrol/.
