WELCOME TO RICCARTON MEDICAL, WHERE YOUR HEALTH IS OUR FOCUS.

IMPORTANT

Due to the Corona Virus outbreak we have had to  significantly re organise the way we see people in the surgery. This is to prevent community transmission within GP Surgery waiting room. Now we are entering Level 2 we will be able to change to a new “normal”.  You will only be able to book phone consultations online (you can also ring and book a phone consultation), however if you feel you need to be seen at the surgery you will need to ring and speak to reception. If you have a runny nose, fever, cough, sore throat, shortness or breath or loss of sense of smell it is important you do not make an appointment online, please ring reception and speak to a nurse. We will be recommencing all routine screening and immunisations.  We will be allowing a minimal amount of people into the waiting room however all seats will be spaced correctly.  We are working within guidelines to minimize the risk of spreading this highly contagious illness. 
Your co operation is much appreciated.  There are daily updates available on the Ministry of Health website  (www.health.govt.nz) We recommend that you get all your information from this source and NOT from social media..  We would ask that when at reception you stand behind our barrier, this is to ensure your safety as well as that of our staff.
Flu vaccinations – the supply of these is still an issue however we are now vaccinating anyone who would like a vaccine as well as those eligible for a free vaccine Please DO NOT come for your flu vaccination if you are unwell with cough or flu like symptoms.
Please be aware this is a very busy time for General Practice and our front line reception staff in particular.
Here are some tips to avoid spreading virus: – Wash your hands often with soap and water or use  alcohol-based sanitiser – Avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth unnecessarily (they are gateways for colds and viruses to enter the body)

FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD A PHONE CONSULT IT  WILL BE CHARGED AT THE NORMAL RATES OF $52 FOR NON COMMUNITY SERVICES CARD AND $19 COMMUNITY SERVICES CARD HOLDERS YOU CAN PAY DIRECTLY INTO OUR BANK ACCOUNT ASB 12-3147-0303763-00.   PLEASE USE YOUR NAME AS REFERENCE WHEN MAKING THE PAYMENT.

We appreciate your patience during this time if you are trying to call the Practice, our phones are ringing non stop and are at times over loaded.

Many thanks for your cooperation and understanding during this time.

 

 

The 24 Hour Surgery is at 401 Madras Street – please be aware you have to turn left off Madras Street down Dollans Lane to access it.
