Merry Christmas Everyone

Dec 07 2015

Everyone at Raumati Road Surgery would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Please take a note of our opening times and the emergency contact information.  Check your stock of medication and make sure you have everything you need.

In the New Year we will welcome back Dr Kate Fairbrother who is coming to work for us for the next year. Kate was our registrar for the first part of 2015 and we are very lucky that she is coming back.

Christmas is Coming!

Nov 18 2015

Christmas is coming. The surgery will be closed on the 25th December to 29th December and again from 1st of January to the 5th of January. Remember pharmacies will also be closed during this time.

Please remember to order all your medication in time. If you will run out during the festive season please order early. We can always give you enough to tide you over this period and see you in the new year.

Please ensure you take your medication if you are going away from home.

The surgery will be activating the "Shared Care Record" during August.  This new system enables health providers to safely and easily access a summary record of patient information through a secure connection via ManageMyHealth. Only authorised health professionals can access patient information.

The Shared Care Record will help health professionals involved in your care access to relevant information from your general practice health record. This will provide those involved in your care with more information, which should lead to safer and higher quality decisions than would otherwise be possible.

Additionally , in situations of civil emergencies (like earthquakes, floods or pandemics) your basic health information will also be immediately available if it is required, even if the surgery is not accessible, because your Shared Care Record is stored outside the surgery.

The information that is shared may include: prescribed regular medications , your current health problems (diagnoses and conditions), allergies, immunisations, recalls and laboratory results.

The consultation notes written by your doctor as part of any normal visit are not currently shared as part of this scheme.

You may chose to opt-out of having a Shared Care Record. If this is the case please contact the surgery and speak with reception staff who will provide you with more information.

If you have any concerns please contact the surgery.

Zero fees structure

Raumati Road Surgery now offers free visits for children under 13 years old. This applies to standard consultations and injuries covered by ACC. There is no charge for prescritions, and the usual $5 charge at the pharmacist no longer applies also.

For some non-standard procedures and medicines there may be a charge.
