The fees listed are a guideline only. These are the fees usually charged for standard 15 minute consultations. There may be extra charges for materials used or additional services.

Please advise us if you require a longer appointment with your doctor. An additional fee applies.


Nurse Consultations

Fees for procedures carried out by nurses vary from $15 upwards, depending on the service(s) and materials provided.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy consultations are free for the first 12 weeks. There will be your usual charge for non pregnancy consultations.

Enrolment and First Visit

Enrolment is where you choose to make us your regular doctor. We arrange for your medical notes to be transferred from your previous doctor, along with the local health authority (PHO) funding. Your first visit involves extra time with a nurse and then your doctor, usually taking 30 minutes. This will usually be at the full fee. Subsequent visits will be at the subsidised rate, even though it may take several months for the funding to come through.

Not everyone is eligible for enrolment. The Ministry of Health website has a guide to eligibility criteria (www.moh.govt.nz/eligibility). The eligibility of non-New Zealand residents for publicly funded health care depends on their work visa status.

Non residents are charged a full fee of $90 for a doctor consultation, regardless of age.
