Primary Healthcare Service
GP practice - enrolled and casual patients
This practice provides COVID-19 testing by appointment to enrolled patients with casual patients able to book in if capacity allows. Please call the practice for more information.
Health 365 bookings are currently turned off for all our sites due to some changes being made. We aim to have these up and running before the end of July. Please phone us for appointments in the meantime. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Waimauku Doctors is a Cornerstone Accredited practice. The achievement of Cornerstone Accreditation signifies a practice's commitment to patients by meeting legal/safety standards and essential standards set by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. This ensures our patients receive high quality care.
When you ring, Press 0 for reception and 1 to speak to a nurse for results, advice or ordering a repeat script. You may not get a nurse to pick up, but please leave a message and they will get back to you within 24 hrs. If it is more urgent, ring again and speak to reception by pressing 0.
We now have an online Patient Portal service where you can confidentially access online some of your clinical information including blood tests, notes, immunisations and measurements. You can make an appointment and view availability of your preferred Dr by template. To access the online service you need to inform a staff member at Waimauku Doctors who will register your email with Health 365.
We are pleased to announce we have reconfigured the Waimauku Pharmacy space to include a Physiotherapist and also Podiatrist. Bookings can be made directly with them. Contact numbers are available at Reception.
We continue to take blood tests as a service to our enrolled patients.
We have some projects that the nurses are active in to help our patients assess their health needs; these being Smoking Brief Advice and CVD Assessment. These services are free to patients, although if there is anything to be followed up with the doctor it will incur our usual charges.
Helen Aish is a counsellor attached to our practice for personal or couple counselling.
Jadelle insertion for contraception now provided by Dr Hillebrand and Dr Ho.
Aclasta for osteoporosis and iron infusions now provided (only if medically indicated). Contact nurses for information.
Free CVD Assessments are available with the nurses for men over 45 and women over 55. This is a check up to work out your risk of having a heart attack or stroke in the next five years. The nurses will take a brief medical and family history, take some measurements e.g. blood pressure and weight. There is also a blood test which we are able to take at the clinic.
The nurses will then look at your risks with you, and advise you of things that you can do to reduce your risk.
Waimauku Doctors is a large, purpose-built Medical and Accident centre with plenty of parking and ease of access. There is a disability parking space, or patients are welcome to be dropped off at the front door. There are two ambulance bays.
We usually have two doctors and two nurses available at any time and three doctors on busy days. One doctor and one nurse are available Saturday mornings.
Consultations are 15mins for a standard visit. Double consults by request incur an additional fee. We endeavour to keep to time but, but being a rural practice, delays due to medical need and fit-in emergencies will occur.
Nurse consultations are available. These cost $30.
Our patients may also have a support person present during a consultation.
Nurses: Nikki, Sharlene, Haley, Deanne, Rebecca, Emily, Karen and Paulette.
Administration: Anne and Katie.
Reception: Katie, Linda, Emma, and Tania.
Medical Centre Manager is Lael.
We added a pharmacy to the centre 17 years ago. This has brought a much needed service to our area. The on site pharmacy is owned and operated by Robbie Hannon, who employs a skilled group of pharmacists and technicians to give advice and dispense medication. All prescriptions can be filled Monday to Friday. Robbie also has a full retail pharmacy now located in the Waimauku Village, situated next door to our satellite medical centre Silver Fern Medical - a mere 120m walk away.

We are a certified teaching practice for medical students and nurses. This provides an invaluable insight for young doctors and nurses into primary care.
