New Fees information

PRACTICE CHARGES; Enrolled patients

The enrolled-patient fees are $19 (adults) and $13 (14 to 17 years). These fees are for standard 10 minute medical consultations with the GP, additional charges will apply for extended consultations and when extra services are provided. Treatment for an on-going illness may require more than one consultation, we are not able to discount follow-up consultations.

There is no charge for standard consultations for enrolled children 13 years and younger, although fees apply for consumables and for special procedures.

After the initial (new patient) consultation, fees for medical consultations are discounted for those enrolled with the Practice.

INR MONITORING (for enrolled patients on Warfarin). There is a $5 monthly fee towards the practice cost of providing this service.


EMAIL CONSULTATIONS WITH YOUR GP
We appreciate that it is convenient to email your GP for medical advice, however to do our best for you, it does take time to review your notes and decide on the best response so $10 fee applies. Prescriptions may still be requested from the nurse (nurse@gbmc.co.nz) for only the cost of a script fee.

‘DNA’ APPOINTMENTS; When patients do not keep their appointments, or cancel at short notice, we charge the usual consultation fee for those without a reasonable explanation for not arriving for an appointment.
