Health New Lynn General Practice
Health New Lynn is a modern general practice and seven day a week urgent care facility. It provides accessible, quality, evidence based health care to the population of greater New Lynn.
True integration with many secondary hospital services is being developed to have these hospital services present within the centre. A more holistic model of care for our patients will be provided by our relationships to specialists, hospital services, radiology, community nursing services, Maori and pacific health providers, midwifery, social services, other Health non government organisations and Whanau Ora.
Your healthcare needs are available seven days a week, and you are able to book an appointment to see your regular medical team.
Health New Lynn is open for:
General practice appointments
• Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm.
We have an urgent care clinic which is open:
• 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday
• 9am to 2pm on weekends.
• The clinic is for urgent matters which cannot wait until a booked appointment is available
• If you want to be seen today and your matter is not acute, you will first be seen by a nurse to assess your concern, however you may not be seen by the doctor today
• Patients are seen on an urgency basis – there may be a wait and you may not necessarily be seen in order of arrive
• Your urgent matter only will be dealt with today – you will be required to book an appointment at a later date for any non-urgent issues
• To assist the doctor with prioritising, front desk staff will ask you to indicate why you need to be seen – please do not be offended, and if you would rather not say simply indicate this to the receptionist
An increasing role for nurses will see much of your regular care provided by our specialist practice nurses, especially for those of you who have stable chronic conditions, but your doctor will also be available.
Enhanced communication with the centre is being developed with internet access to patient appointments, repeat prescriptions and results of investigations.
