Adult and Child Medical Care

Your GP's surgery is far more than a place to go when you are feeling unwell and needing a quick cure. The doctor who sees you has gone through an extensive medical training to equip her or him to help children and adults of all ages with a range of physical and emotional difficulties. GPs are at the centre of the healthcare hub and will be aware of services and expertise that are available locally and further-a-field. GPs are also aware of the link that stress and unhappy life events have on physical health so know when to suggest a talking therapy rather than medication. Also specialise in MOLE MAP and MOLE REMOVAL SURGERY. For more information please view our website: http://www.stlukesmed.co.nz/

Minor Accident and Injury Care

Primary care practices offer a range of services and are able to deal with most minor accident care. If they are not able to deal with an injury they will refer on to the appropriate service.

Minor Surgery

Minor surgery is commonly provided in primary care practices, providing fast, competent removal and biopsies of skin lesions. Other services include cosmetic work such as removal of benign moles and skin tags. Ingrown toenail surgery is also commonly provided. These conditions do not need to be referred to a hospital, perhaps saving you a long wait or a cancelled appointment when a more serious case takes priority.

Repeat Prescriptions

Each GP surgery or primary care practice will have its own procedure for repeat prescribing but the following rules are common to most, if not all. Patients who are well-known to the practice who have a stable condition like asthma, hypertension or diabetes could be allowed to get a repeat prescription for up to six months. Repeat prescriptions are never given to patients who are not known to the practice and there is probably a blanket ban on repeats for narcotics and other drugs that could be misused as doctors are expected to monitor these drugs carefully. For repeat prescriptions you have to inform us at least 3 working days beforehand.

Lab Results

Sometimes your doctor needs to take a sample of blood or urine either to discover what is wrong with you or to measure something in your blood so that the right medication is given to you. These tests could be anything from blood sugar to a full blood count or a sample of tissue to test for cancer. While urine can generally be tested in the surgery, blood and other specimens are usually sent away for testing at a laboratory. Most results come back within 48 hours unless a very rare test is needed which has to go to a specialist lab further away when it might take a little longer. We will contact the patient if results are outside the normal range.

Liquid Nitrogen

Liquid nitrogen is a fast, effective treatment provided in many practices to treat viral warts, sun damaged skin, skin tags and many benign cosmetic lesions. It comes in a container with a nozzle and is usually applied by swab or spray. Often one treatment is all that is needed but sometimes it may need repeating after two weeks. Because it cannot be stored for too long, you will often find that your GP will treat a number of patients one after the other. For more information click here. By appointment.

Cervical Screening

All women and people with a cervix aged 25 – 69 who have ever had intimate skin-to-skin contact or been sexually active should have regular cervical screening. This includes women who have been immunised against HPV. Together, regular screening and HPV immunisation provide the best protection against cervical cancer. There are now more options for how you have cervical screening done: a simple vaginal swab test for HPV, either done yourself or with help from a healthcare professional a cervical sample taken by a healthcare professional (used to be known as a smear test). Talk with your healthcare provider to decide which option is best for you. If HPV is found, you may need to have a follow-up test or be referred directly for colposcopy. If you’ve not yet had HPV testing, you should be screened 3 years after your last test (or 1 year if immune deficient). Once you have had an HPV test, and providing HPV is not found, your next screening will be in 5 years (or 3 years if immune deficient). For more information: Cervical screening | Time to Screen - National Screening Unit By appointment. A female doctor is available.

ECG

An ECG is a recording of your heart's electrical activity. Electrode patches are attached to your skin to measure the electrical impulses given off by your heart. The result is a trace that can be read by a doctor. It can give information of previous heart attacks or problems with the heart rhythm.

Travel Health Advice

Another service offered to you at your GP surgery (primary care practice) is advice and immunisation before you go to another country. While you are likely to have the immunisations needed to live in New Zealand, there may be other injections you need to protect yourself before going for example to Africa or South America. In some places you will need protection from rabies or malaria. Yellow fever vaccinations are only available at approved centres; please click here to view the centres in New Zealand. Your doctor will be able to tell you what diseases you will need to be protected from in any named country and advise you on other medical matters.

Well Child/Tamariki Ora Health Checks – Birth to Three Years

All New Zealand children are entitled to 11 free health checks from birth to three years. The checks aim to ensure that children are growing and developing as well as possible. Included in the checks are clinical assessment, health education and family/whanau support. Baby checks are at birth and then at 24 hours, five days and around 2-4 weeks. Babies are weighed and measured to ensure that they are developing correctly. These sessions provide a great opportunity for parents to ask questions from an expert and have any problem addressed; difficulties with breastfeeding or sleep for example. They can also be used to discuss immunisations and vaccinations. These checks will be carried out by your lead maternity carer (LMC). Between the ages of 4-6 weeks and three years, there are seven core health checks available, typically these are around 4-6 weeks, 8-10 weeks, 3-4 months, 5-7 months, 9-12 months, 15-18 months and 2-3 years. These checks may be carried out by a Well Child Provider of your choice e.g. Plunket, Maori health provider, community nurse, a general practice team (doctor and practice nurse). Your LMC will be able to give you a list of Well Child Providers in your area. More information about Well Child services is available on the Ministry of Health website.

  • Mole map Testimonials (JPG, 9.4 KB)

    "I honestly believe that Doctor Ahmed has saved my life. So far, he has discovered one melanoma, three atypicals and one basal cell cancer. I would never have picked up on the melanoma as it looked the same to me as all my other moles. I am extremely grateful that I am still alive and make sure I come in every 3 months for regular checking. The checking equipment used is far superior to any equipment I have experienced in the past and the mole map itself is very fast and efficient. The removal of any suspicious moles is always done as soon as possible which helps to alleviate any worries that I have. I recommend Dr Ahmed without hesitation." Shelly F Patient

    "I writing to express my gratitude to you, as I am still able to do so because of you. I'm alive due to your professionalism and timely intervention in arranging my immediate admittance to hospital. I am sure you are my Guardian Angel. I and my family are so grateful for your extra care and effort that makes it possible for me to live on, otherwise I would be gone from this world by now. Again I and my family thank you for the work that you have done for me and all your patients. We wish you only the best in your work may God also bless you and your family too.

  • Mole Map Testimonials (JPG, 8.4 KB)

    "As a result of a GrabOne special offer, I took a mole map at the St. Lukes Medical Centre in November 2011. On completion of the molemap, Dr. Bashir Ahmed observed that a mole on my left leg looked suspicious and should be checked further, so he removed that mole and did histology. Within 2 days he had the results: It was an invasive melanoma. So as per protocol I needed another big surgery which was also done with in 2 days. I am glad that I took up the molemap offer at St lukes medical center. I recommand every New Zealand Adult should do Mole Check regularly." Noleen F

  • Mole Map Testimonials (JPG, 11.2 KB)

    "Purchasing a Mole Mapping Voucher for St Lukes Medical Centre ensured I promptly had a full mole check and I am so very thankful I did. Dr Bashir removed three suspicious naevi, one of which was a melanoma in situ that required further surgery. I never considered melanoma something to necessarily be concerned about at my age, I work in a medical/hospital environment and assumed these skin changes occured much later in life. I urge everybody living in New Zealand to have a full mole map sooner rather than later, visit Dr Bashir and his team at St Lukes Medical Centre for an expert examination." Treve D
