What we care for

Our skilled team of GPs and nurses provide the full suite of high quality care to help our patients get well and stay well.

Book an appointment to see us for anything from one off issues or prescriptions, screenings and immunisations, to long-term support for treatment and management of chronic health conditions. We provide health care for the whole whanau, from babies to adults of all ages.

We cover all aspects of general health, including mental health services, injury care for sprains, strains, bumps and bruises, treatment for various pain and discomfort, contraceptive care, general checks or advice, flu, travel or other vaccinations and more.

Our clinic is ACC accredited, and we can help with assessments and recovery care plans for accidental injuries.

If you need a referral to another health service or specialist, we can help with that too, and we have a pharmacy next door along with dental, physiotherapy and x-ray 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 Takanini as your regular clinic, Bettr’s accessible online care provides a great backup if you need care in an evening or on a 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, prescriptions, ACC assessments 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, 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.
