Please note: You are more than welcome to bring a support person to any of these consultations.
Our doctors are experienced general medical practitioners with a broad range of health care specialities.
Orewa Medical Centre Doctors provide general medical consultations and a full range of personal medical checks as well as commercial medical examinations including those for driving, insurance and diving purposes. Our Doctors recommend regular personal health checks and well child checks including immunisations. The Doctors are available to provide pregnancy care – pre natal, ante natal and post natal and can make recommendations on delivery and labour LMC providers. Orewa Medical Centre Doctors have commitments to the local rest homes, private hospitals and dementia units.
Orewa Medical Centre Nurses use their extensive knowledge and skills to provide you with the best possible care. One on one consultations for cervical smears, Cardiovascular care, Smoking cessation support, Travel assessment and Osteoporosis treatments can be booked with nurses. Chronic medical conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Diabetes or Asthma can be greatly assisted by the expertise of our nurses. Immunisations for children, travel and work are available. Nurse consultations fees apply.
Nurse telephone service available 24 hours a day everyday including public holidays. Phone (09) 426 5437.
In some circumstances you can arrange with a nurse to get a repeat prescription for a regular medication by phone. This is at the discretion of your doctor who has the clinical and medico-legal responsibility to medically review you and may ask that you make an appointment.
To help with this process please phone at least one week before your medication runs out as it can take up to 48 hours for the request to be approved and script to be available. You can discuss options for collection, faxing to a pharmacy and the fees for these services with the nurse.
We offer an up-to-date travel advice and vaccination services. We provide essential pre and post travel care, with assistance in choosing the best insect repellent, minimum hazard exposure and recommending appropriate vaccines for disease prevention. The advice given is individualised to meet your specific travel requirements.
We have online internet access to the latest health information. This includes information on disease outbreaks, appropriate malarial medication and current international vaccine requirements and recommendations for each country. Yellow fever vaccination is not available from this clinic.
We advise that you book your appointment with us, 4-6 weeks before travel is to commence or as soon as possible, as some vaccines require more than one dose. You will need to book for 30mins with our travel nurse who will discuss your travel plans in depth and advise recommended vaccines. You will follow on with the doctor who will confirm these vaccines and ensure they are safe for you to have based on your medical history and prescribe these for you.
Please bring with you;
Detailed itinerary of travel plans
Information on previous vaccinations received
List of current medicines
List of allergies
For some of these vaccinations, we have stock on hand and can be done on the day, but for others these will need to be ordered in which case we do ask for a 50% deposit for us to order these for you, with the balance paid on the day you are immunised.
Please advise reception staff that you are requesting a travel consultation so appropriate nurse and doctor time can be arranged. Please note: this is not a subsidised medical appointment so please ask our reception team for the cost of this consultation.
Orewa Medical Centre staff are equipped to handle a broad range of accident and medical treatments including suturing. Although a GP bookings based practice we do endeavour to have some walk in appointments available for urgent cases.
We have several very experienced GP’s able to offer contraceptive advise.
We are able to diagnosis pregnancy and advice about prenatal, pregnancy and post-natal care. Information packs for pregnancy are available and we can discuss referral to midwives or obstetricians. We do not provide a labour or delivery service but can assist with referral to those that do. We are happy to provide care for new babies including all childhood vaccinations and well child checks.
We have a purpose built surgical room where minor surgery can be preformed under local anaesthetic. This allows for cost-effective diagnosis and/or removal of most skin lesions including skin cancers or referral to another provider if that is the most appropriate management.
