Latest news and information from Newlands Medical Centre

A message from Dr Tim McKenzie

"My family and I would like to say how much we have appreciated all the cards, gifts, and messages of support since my diagnosis last September.  We have been overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness.  It is simply not possible for us to respond to everyone individually so please take this as a personal acknowledgment of your kindness.

With regret I have come to the decision that I will not be returning to work, but I know that you are in good hands with the team at Newlands.  It has been a privilege to be a part of your lives, and I wish you all the best for your future health.

Patient portal-have you considered it?

Over 1,000 patients are already using the patient portal.  We are now inviting all patients over the age of 16 years to register. This is a confidential and secure way to access your health information online, and to communicate with your GP.  You can view test results, request repeat prescriptions, and book non-urgent appointments at a time convenient to you.  There is also an app so you can access your health records anywhere, at anytime.

For more information check out the video link on the Home page.

Health Care Home - We're making some changes for the better.

We want to make it easier for you to get in touch with us. We upgraded our phone systems so that we can answer your call more efficiently.  
We also have Health Care Online, our Patient Portal, which allows you to contact your GP, book appointments, and see lab results and other clinical information, online.  Going forward, as a portal user, you will be able to communicate with your GP in person, over the phone, or online.  We may be able to save you a trip in to see us if you don’t need to, which may be more convenient for you.

Zero fees for Under-13s

From 1 July 2015 children enrolled as patients, aged between 6 and 12 years, will be FREE at Newlands Medical Centre for GP consultations, ACC-related visits, nurse consultations, and prescriptions. 

Please note consumables, such as Liquid Nitrogen and dressings, will still attract a fee. 

The Zero Fees policy does not apply to casual or non-NZ resident patients.
