The Kaipara Medical Centre team wants to thank the community for being so understanding this week with two of its GPs on unexpected sick leave.
We really appreciate the community’s patience and all the many get-well messages received for the unwell doctors.
Until our team is back to full strength, we’re making some changes which will ensure our current patients are prioritised along with emergency care.
* We’re not accepting any new enrolments.
* The hours of our evening clinics may be reduced subject to staff availability. These are usually 5.30pm - 7.30pm, Mon, Wed and Friday but check our website, www.kaiparamedicalcentre.co.nz for the most up to date information.
* Some patients may have their non-urgent appointments rescheduled, but only after we've talked with them.
There had been plans to start building the new onsite dispensary, but that project has been put on hold while the staffing situation is managed and we're over the busy winter period.
Our website lists the hours your regular doctor works. It can be a juggle fitting patients in with their preferred doctor, but we assure you we do our very best to make it happen when we can.
Thanks again for your understanding, The Kaipara Medical Centre Board and Staff.
