Grey Lynn Family Medical Centre

Primary Healthcare Service

Description

Our medical centre is your entry to the healthcare system. We endeavour to care for the whole person and deliver medical services in a personal way. We encourage you to develop a relationship with one doctor. As a medical practice committed to the local community, we offer you a comprehensive health service

There are new advances in healthcare being made all the time. As a practice, we try to remain at the forefront of these advances for your benefit. Constant change in healthcare delivery has become normal for most professionals. Here we give some examples of the new innovations and areas of expertise we are developing so that we might improve our service to you.

Dr Mark Craig is currently the only GP who new patients are able to enrol with, as all of the other GPs' books are at full capacity and they are unable to enrol new patients for long term care. Casual patient appointments are very restricted however we endeavour to assist visiting relatives of enrolled patients and have an arrangement for our nurses to test and treat children with sore throats at increased risk of rheumatic fever.

Women's Healthcare
Practice nurses Trish, Janet, Kim and Abbey have done  training in women’s health so that they can provide a personal service including smears and breast checks or family planning and sexual health advice.

Asthma Care
Additional annual review nurse check is available.

Diabetes Care
Diabetic annual checks are part of our enhanced service for those people with diabetes. In conjunction with Procare Network Auckland PHO, we aim to reduce the morbidity and heart disease risk for this group. This has already shown benefits to our patients who have better access than ever before to professional advice.

Cardiovascular Risk Screening
Ask about a CVD risk assessment [age 35 plus]. Our computer shares your [non-identifiable] risk factors, family history, cholesterol and blood pressure results etc with specialist research computer software which provides advice for reduction in cardiovascular risk.
