Appointments

GP Consultations

Our standard consultations are 15 minutes in duration. If your consultation runs over the 15-minute mark there may be a small extra charge, although we often encourage a further booking in consideration of patients waiting for the next appointment. This also allows for more comprehensive follow up medical care.

Should a referral to a specialist or hospital be required, we will assist you in managing the process.

Support Person

If you would like a support person with you at your consultation please feel free to bring someone with your or advise our staff who will get a member of staff to attend the consultation with you.

Special Appointments for New Patients

For newly enrolled patients, your first consultation with the GP will be for a minimum of 30 minutes. This is required by our GP to ensure a thorough review of your medical history/records and examination. New patients to the practice are encouraged to complete a preliminary assessment at the reception. This is scheduled on an appointment basis. Please get in touch with our receptionist to organize.

Booking Appointments

At the time of booking your appointment, please specify how many in the family need to be seen. 

If you think you do require a double appointment, please inform our receptionist or specify it on your online booking so it can be accommodated. You will be charged double if a double appointment is booked. 

Cancellations

In order to be considerate to others who are waiting for an appointment and would benefit from this time, failure to attend a booked appointment will incur full charges.

You are liable to pay a cancellation fee if you miss your appointment or cancel before the 6 hour period at Alert Level 1.

If you are sick, or unable to make your appointment, please contact us at 09 320 4759 or email us at reception@northpointmedical.co.nz.

YOU WILL BE INVOICED/CHARGED BASED ON THE SERVICE YOU WERE BOOKED UNDER.

MISSED APPOINTMENTS WITH THE NURSES FOR FUNDED VACCINATIONS OR FOR CHILDREN UNDER 14YRS WILL BE CHARGE A $20 CANCELLATION FEE.

Please report to the reception desk on arrival.
