What we care for

Our Otahuhu clinic offers the full spectrum of general practice health care. From casual appointments for one-off needs, through to ongoing care to ensure our patients’ long-term health. Come see us for all your general health requirements and minor accidents. We provide family and children’s healthcare, do minor surgeries, offer liquid nitrogen treatments, cervical screening, contraceptive services, and can help you recover from colds and flus, sprains and strains. We are ACC accredited and can support your return to health after an accidental injury.

Our team are dedicated to treating the whole person. For our enrolled patients, this means we’ll help you stay up to date with screenings and immunisations to keep on top of health management. We also offer mental health services as well as physical. Our team provide skilled treatment, care plans and management of complex longer-term health concerns from diabetes to depression and a wide range of other ailments.

We can also make referrals to other services wherever necessary and have a pharmacy on-site as well as private dental and physiotherapy services.

Bettr, supporting our clinics

Bettr’s online service is the perfect complement to our clinics, giving you the balance of convenience with the comfort and confidence of complete general practice services with a regular doctor that’s close to you. With Otahuhu 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 one in person.

Our team are well trained to provide a range of physical services that Bettr can’t do remotely, such as minor procedures, examinations, tests, screens, ACC assessments and more. As part of the Tamaki Health network, Patients enrolled with our clinic network also benefit from reduced rates for Bettr, at just $15 per onling 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, what's best?

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.
