What we care for

At our clinic we can help you with specific concerns and casual appointments right through to skilled treatment and management of ongoing health issues such as chronic illness, mental wellness support, and generational family care. For enrolled patients we ensure regular screenings and immunisations to provide each patient the appropriate care to stay well ongoing. We are ACC accredited so we can give you the support you need to recover from an accidental injury. 

How it supports Bettr

Bettr’s online service is the perfect complement to our physical clinics, providing you a balance of convenience alongside the comfort and confidence of complete general practice services with a regular doctor that’s close to you. With Avondale Medical Centre as your regular clinic, Bettr’s accessible online care provides a great backup if you need care in an evening or weekend, or if you need to check-in with a doctor but either can’t, or don’t think you need to, see a doctor in person.

Avondale’s GP team offers the full range of general health services including both physical and mental wellbeing support. Our team are well trained to provide a range of physical services that Bettr can’t do remotely, including minor procedures, examinations, tests, screens and more. As part of the Tamaki Health network, Patients enrolled with our clinic network also benefit from reduced rates for Bettr appointments, at just $15 per appointment (or free for children under 14).

If you are given a prescription during your visit, you can organise repeat prescriptions through Bettr, or vice versa. With all our clinics and Bettr linked through the same system, your records are available wherever you need them.

Online or a clinic, which to choose?

If you’re unsure whether to see a Bettr doctor or to visit a clinic, you might be surprised just how much we can take care of in an online consult. Most common health concerns can be tended to easily and effectively. Even repeat prescriptions are easy via Bettr. (Prescriptions for new or restricted medicines might require an in-person visit).

If you do end out needing to see a doctor in-person, we’ll refer you to our nearest clinic and your in-person visit will be either free, or you’ll just pay the cost difference between your original online appointment, and your in-person follow-up.

If your health concern requires a physical treatment or test (like immunisations, a cervical, prostate or other exam, or skin tag and wart removal for example) it’s likely best for you to head into one of our clinics.
