Description

News:   

Waimauku Doctors is a Cornerstone Accredited practice. The achievement of  Cornerstone Accreditation signifies a practice's commitment to patients by meeting legal/safety standards and essential standards set by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. This ensures our patients receive high quality care. 

When you ring, Press 0 for reception and 1 to speak to a nurse for results, advice or ordering a repeat script. You may not get a nurse to pick up, but please leave a message and they will get back to you within 24 hrs. If it is more urgent, ring again and speak to reception by pressing 0.

We now have an online Patient Portal service where you can confidentially access online some of your clinical information including blood tests, notes, immunisations and measurements. You can make an appointment and view availability of your preferred Dr by template. To access the online service you need to inform a staff member at Waimauku Doctors who will register your email with Health 365.

We are pleased to announce we have reconfigured the Waimauku Pharmacy space to include a Physiotherapist and also Podiatrist. Bookings can be made directly with them. Contact numbers are available at Reception.

We continue to take blood tests as a service to our enrolled patients.

We have some projects that the nurses are active in to help our patients assess their health needs; these being Smoking Brief Advice and CVD Assessment. These services are free to patients, although if there is anything to be followed up with the doctor it will incur our usual charges.

 Helen Aish is a counsellor attached to our practice  for personal or couple counselling.

Jadelle insertion for contraception now provided by Dr Hillebrand and Dr Ho.

Aclasta for osteoporosis and iron infusions now provided (only if medically indicated). Contact nurses for information.

Free CVD Assessments are available with the nurses for men over 45 and women over 55. This is a check up to work out your risk of having a heart attack or stroke in the next five years. The nurses will take a brief medical and family history, take some measurements e.g. blood pressure and weight. There is also a blood test which we are able to take at the clinic.

The nurses will then look at your risks with you, and advise you of things that you can do to reduce your risk. 

Waimauku Doctors  is a large, purpose-built Medical and Accident centre with plenty of parking and ease of access. There is a disability parking space, or patients are welcome to be dropped off at the front door. There are two ambulance bays.

We usually have two doctors and two nurses available at any time and three doctors on busy days. One doctor and one nurse are available Saturday mornings.

Consultations are 15mins for a standard visit. Double consults by request incur an additional fee. We endeavour to keep to time but, but being a rural practice, delays due to medical need and fit-in emergencies will occur.

We now offer a walk-in service and wait for first available doctor. Booked appointments are given priority unless the problem is urgent.

Nurse consultations are available. These cost $30.

Our patients may also have a support person present during a consultation.

Our doctors are:  Dr Harry Hillebrand, Dr Kathy McDonald, Dr Cathy Fisk, Dr Phillipa Ho and Dr Gina Boorsma. Currently we have Dr Peter Medcalf from England undertaking a 6 month locum until the end of March 2019.All, except Dr Gina Boorsma and Dr Peter Medcalf are New Zealand trained General Practitioners and Members of the NZ College of GPs, skilled in general family medicine and accident and emergency work. Dr Gina Boorsma received her medical training in Holland. Dr Peter Medcalf received his medical training in the UK.

Our Nurses are: Jill, Nikki, Sharlene, Haley, Nicola, Deanne, Valeska and Paulette. They are all NZ trained Registered General Nurses, experienced and trained in resuscitation, immunisation, wound management, health screening and general healthcare. All attend regular training updates.

Our practice assistant is Anne. She is experienced in taking blood, doing ECGs and other clinical and management skills.

Our reception team is here to welcome you and comprises Katie, Linda, Emma, Justine and Sarah.

Our Medical Centre Manager is Fiona.

We added a pharmacy to the centre 12 years ago. This has brought a much needed service to our area. The on site pharmacy is owned and operated by Robbie Hannon, who employs a skilled group of pharmacists and technicians to give advice and dispense medication. All prescriptions can be filled Monday to Friday. Robbie also has a full retail Pharmacy now located in the Waimauku Village, situated next door to our satellite medical centre Silver Fern Medical - a mere 120m walk away.  For more information go to www.waimaukupharmacy.co.nz

We are a certified teaching practice for medical students and nurses. This provides an invaluable insight for young doctors and nurses into primary care.
