Description

Welcome and Kia Ora to Lynnmall Medical Centre. Please take time to read this to familiarise yourself with our centre.

Our History:

We have been established as a general practice since the late 1980s and our rooms were initially located in small rooms upstairs next to the Lynnmall Management Office. We have been at our present, purpose built, premises since September 1997. We are part of Procare PHO and have a diverse population of patients who are mostly based in West Auckland. Our aim is to provide you with personalised, quality healthcare.

Our Staff:

Dr Robert Price and Dr Slushna Weeramuni are the principal GPs. Dr Price has been at the practice since 1993 and Dr Weeramuni since 1995. Dr Price qualified at the University Of Auckland Medical School and Dr Weeramuni at the University of London. They both have attained fellowship of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and practice with the ethics and codes set down by the RNZCGP.

You have the choice of enrolling with either a male or female doctor. Once enrolled, we ask that you continue to see the same doctor as we believe that this provides good continuity of care.

We also have three Nurses, (Becky, Jasmine and Siphiwe), who job share and are very experienced in the provision of General Practice care. In addition to normal practice nursing duties, they are also experienced in the management of chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. 

Our reception staff - Julie, Suzana and Danielle- job share during the week and for the Saturday morning surgeries. They do have set hours, but also cover each other for holiday and sick leave so you may find that they change their hours from time to time. Please note that we do not have a nurse available for Saturday morning surgeries.

We also have four part time doctors: Dr Anne-Marie Lonergan and Dr Heather Wishart work sessions for us on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Dr Asif Rahman provides us with cover on Saturday mornings.

After Hours Care Arrangements:

This practice provides after hours care by arrangement with Westcare White Cross Clinics in New Lynn phone (09) 828 8912 and Henderson phone (09) 836 3336. You can also be seen at the local hospital A+E clinics if your need is urgent. 

Our phones are also automatically diverted to Homecare Medical Ltd for free nursing advice when we are closed. 

Appointments:

Please ring (09) 827 3163 for an appointment. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred time. Emergencies will always be given priority and our reception staff will attempt to contact you if there is any unforeseen delay or your GP has been called away. Longer consultation times are available, so please ask our receptionist if you require some extra time. Please also let us know if you are intending for more than one person to be seen as we will need to give you extra time. By not doing so will make the doctor run late.

The Nurses also run an appointment system and you can see them for services such as blood pressure checks, immunisations, liquid nitrogen, dressings, cervical smears and minor medical problems. Please enquire with the nurse or reception staff about this.

Please be on time for your appointment and also inform us in good time if you are unable to make it as we can always give it to someone else who really needs to see the doctor. If you don’t inform us that you are not going to turn up for your appointment it means that a really sick person may miss out on seeing the doctor that day. If you miss two or more appointments, there will be a charge made against your account.

Please note, from time to time we may be unable to fit you in (as the doctors can only see so many patients a day). If this occurs you may be advised to go to your local A+E clinic. You may also request to speak to the Nurse for medical advice if you are unsure about what to do.
 

Home Visits and Telephone Access:

Home visits are available for regular patients whose condition prevents them from attending the surgery. GPs in the practice may be contacted during normal surgery hours. If the GP is with a patient, a message will be taken and you will be advised by the reception staff when it is likely that the GP will return your call. Your call will always be put through to the GP in an emergency. If your GP is unable to do the visit within a reasonable period of time due to being unable to leave the surgery, you will be offered referral to a house call doctor agency. Please note that there will be extra fees for house calls done by our GPs as well as the house call doctors.
 

Public Holidays: Closed on all public holidays.
Christmas: Closed 24 Dec — 2 Jan. Open 3 Jan (8:30 AM – 7:00 PM). Open 4 Jan (8:30 AM – 7:00 PM).
