Our policy is that all fees are paid at the time of your consultation (except in an emergency). If this is a problem, please speak to your Doctor, our Accounts Manager or our Practice Manager. You are welcome to set up a regular automatic payment to help manage the cost of your health care. Reminders of overdue accounts will be sent to each patient by text or email where possible. Full copies of overdue accounts can be provided if requested.

Payment can be made to our bank account 12 3191 0058275 00 (please include your name and address as payment reference).

The enrolled fees apply to patients who are eligible, i.e. New Zealand citizens, permanent residents, and eligible visa holders, and enrolled with our Practice.

Please note that additional charges will be incurred for consumables, some triage calls and out-of-session portal responses.

We reserve the right to charge a fee if a patient fails to attend their booked appointment and does not contact us to cancel it. The Non Attendance fee is $20 for under 14 year olds, $47.00 for 14-17 year olds and $58.00 for patients 18 and over. Please see our Terms of Trade
