“We believe that the best medical care is achieved through an ongoing relationship with your own GP”
We are very fortunate in New Zealand to have a system of high quality, affordable primary healthcare which is readily available. Our experienced professional staff at St Heliers Medical are very well qualified to understand and help you with a full range of healthcare needs. While we will often need to help with diagnosis and treatment of illness, our most important role is to “coach” our patients in healthy lifestyle behaviour, including assistance with knowledge about good patterns of exercise, nutrition and optimal body composition.
We have close working relationships with a wide variety of other medical specialists in Greater Auckland and elsewhere, in both public and private sectors. We will advise you on the best referral pathway for problems requiring more focused expertise, and will advocate for you within the Public Health system.
Our standard appointment length is 15 minutes. You may request a longer appointment ( for which there will usually be a higher fee) when you make your booking.
We will try to see you for GENUINELY urgent matters on the same day; If your doctor is fully booked you may be offered an appointment with another doctor. In many cases the receptionist will refer you to the Practice Nurse to help triage your problem as quickly as possible.
Emergency consultations will often need to take priority, and ALL appointment times are approximate. We try hard to keep to time!
Please try to see the same doctor where possible for followup of the same problem, which will result in better care for you.
