What We Do
The foundation of New Zealand’s health system is general practice, which makes expert healthcare affordable and readily available. Our GPs and nurses at Mt Eden Medical Centre are in an excellent position to get to know you well and understand your individual healthcare needs.
As well as assisting you to deal with illnesses, we want to help you to maintain your good health. When you come to see us at Mt Eden Medical Centre, we are thinking broadly about your well-being and we are able to provide a wide range of services, as they are needed by you from time to time.
For example, with our focus on prevention, we have a reminder system (“recalls”) for when you are due for routine checks such as smears, cholesterol blood tests and immunisations. Even when referral for specialist advice or tests is needed, your doctor will help you with the process and continue to manage your ongoing healthcare needs.
Mt Eden Medical Centre is committed to the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi – Te Tiriti O Waitangi. We recognise the special relationship that Māori have with their culture, traditions and taonga.
We value cultural diversity and we strive to be sensitive to our patients’ cultural backgrounds.
“We believe that the best medical care is achieved through an ongoing relationship with your own GP.”
Our standard appointment length is 15 minutes. You may request a longer appointment (at an additional fee) when you make your booking.
Special Appointment For New Patients
We encourage new patients to Mt Eden Medical Centre to take advantage of a special, preliminary assessment by our nurses, at no extra charge. This is scheduled immediately prior to you seeing the GP.
Wellman / Wellwomen checks
We encourage our patients to see their doctor for a routine check up, especially if they have not had a consultation with us for some time. This can usually be done in a standard 15 minute consultation and is targeted to your age and any risk factors.
You may choose to book for a more comprehensive "Well Man or Well Woman Checkup", especially if you have a number of health concerns. This involves time with our nurse first and then a longer appointment with your doctor. There is an additional cost for this. Please arrange this appointment by phoning our receptionists, rather than booking on-line.
We have a lovely, child-friendly immunisation room and our nurses are specially trained for immunisations.
Children's Waiting Room
We have a very large, bright room just for children which is great place to meet other families and keep the children amused while waiting.
There is an off-street car park for disabled people with an access ramp at the rear entrance to the building. We also have a toilet for disabled people and we are keen to offer any assistance that is required.
We have a dedicated operating theatre and can do a range of small surgical services such as mole removal.
Wi-Fi Hot Spot
Wi-Fi internet access is available free of charge in the waiting rooms. Please ask our receptionists for a log-in key.
When the Mt Eden Medical Center is closed , our telephone is answered by an experienced nurse who will advise you on the best course of action to take.
Special Medical Examinations
We are happy to conduct medical examinations and reports required by insurance companies, employers, diving certification, driving licenses, etc (we do not currently do immigration medicals). Please advise us about the type of medical that you need when you make your appointment so we can allow enough time.
We provide comprehensive travel advice and vaccinations.
