Huntly West Medical Centre - Primary Health Care Ltd

 

We support just under 4,000 enrolled patients. We are a great big family, where everyone knows everyone. We have supported families through a number of generations. We are just a small jump over the Waikato River from State Highway One and are next door to a pharmacy and Pathlab.

Call us to make an appointment. Emergencies will always be given priority and our reception staff will attempt to contact you if there is any unforeseen delay or your GP has been called away. Longer consultation times are available, for a higher fee. Please ask the receptionists if you require extra time. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please let reception know as early as possible so the time can be allocated to someone else.

Our medical centre is committed to keeping you healthy. We may send you a reminder from time to time offering you health services appropriate to your care. If you do not wish to be notified of these, please let us know at reception.

Test results: you are welcome to call us and get the results of your test. You may be contacted following your test if there is any action or intervention required as a result, such as a prescription for medication, review with the GP, referral to a specialist, repeat test, etc.

Cervical smears: all women who have had a cervical smear should expect to hear about the result within two weeks. Please contact the medical centre if you have not heard from us after this time.
