Services

Please note: You are more than welcome to bring a support person to any of these consultations.

General Medical Services

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.

Nursing Services

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.

Repeat Prescriptions

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.

Travel Health

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.

Accident and Urgent Medical Care

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.

Family Planning and Pregnancy Care

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.

Minor Surgery

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.

Price list:  Please discuss if you have a lump or bump that is not on the list

Mole

$350.00 (onwards depending on size)

Lipoma

$325.00 (depending on size and number)

Wedge Resection Toenail

You will need to have an appointment with one of the GP’s first so the doctor can review and decide on the appropriate plan moving forward.

Time for another update |

It's crazy to think that just over eight weeks ago we were getting ready to head into alert level 4, and now, after nearly six weeks confined to our homes (unless exercising or classified as an essential worker) We are now making the move back to some sort of normality. With this brings an update as to how OMC is working under level 2.

- Please DO NOT present to the practice for questions/queries that can be easily sorted over the phone or via email. Our lovely reception team are here to help and can often do so without you coming in.
Phone: 09 426 5437
Email: reception@orewamedicalcentre.co.nz

- We are still encouraging phone and video consultations. Although we are able to get out and about more freely now, we still want to encourage the use of these as much as possible, we want to continue to keep the number of people presenting to the practice to a minimum.

- For that same reason, if you do require a face to face consultation, we are asking that you please come alone where possible. We do understand that in some instances you will want/need a support person and that is okay too.

- When coming into the practice for an appointment, we ask that if you arrive a little early, please wait in your car until your appointment time. Again, this is to minimise the numbers in the practice.

- After weeks of minimal patient contact, the nursing team are excited to get back to caring for you. They can now add some other services to the list. These include: Ear suction, Cervical smears and Liquid Nitrogen. If there is something you would like done, please contact reception and they can advise the process for this.

- PLEASE BE KIND – The team has had to make many changes very quickly to meet the alert level needs and along with that comes the odd glitch. Please be patient, we will do all we can to help and rectify any issues.

As always, keep up the hand washing and kindness
Stay safe

Agree, a wonderful team of people.

It’s time for an update |

CHANGE IN OPERATING HOURS:
Due to the social distancing keeping everyone a little bit safer, it seems we are not needed as late! Because of this we have decided to shorten the opening hours. We will be operating between 8:00am and 5:00pm weekdays. This will be reviewed again shortly, so there may be further changes coming soon. We will be sure to keep you all updated on any changes that do occur!

REDUCED STAFF:
There are a little less of us around the practice during this time. Do not worry, we are still here to help! Please do not hesitate to phone reception for any queries you may have. We are more than happy to assist you in anyway we can during this difficult time.

SOCIAL DISTANCING:
As we move into level three, our restrictions stay the same. Please DO NOT present to the practice. We are still required to offer phone and video consultations instead of face to face and although there maybe a little more freedom out there for you, we ask that you still contact us via email or phone first. There will be times where you need to come in, but this will be advised by our staff. It is still strongly encouraged that where possible you stay home.

FLU VACCINATIONS AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE:
We are now able to book anyone in for their flu vaccination. This can be booked from as early as next Tuesday the 28th April! This will cost $35.00. If you would like to book yourself and/or a family member in for this, please phone reception on 09 426 5437.

Stay safe everyone! And remember, be kind and keep within your bubbles.
