The following are the fees charged for a standard General Practice consultation within usual business hours. Additional charges may be incurred for extra services or extended visits, for example minor surgery and insurance examinations.
Invercargill Medical Centre would like to advise that they currently have Nurse Practitioners taking on new patients. General Practitioners at this time are unable to enrol any further patients under their care however their Nurse Practitioner colleagues have vacancies.
All new patients to Invercargill Medical Centre will be booked with one of our registered nurses prior to their first appointment with a clinician, this is so they can take ensure all your information from your previous medical centre has been received and that your current medical condition is recorded for the clinician to be able to appropriately assess and evaluate you.
Nursing Consultations/Services are available by appointment. These include blood pressure monitoring, diabetes monitoring, cardiovascular checks, dressings, immunisations, smoking cessation, cervical smears and advice about healthy living.
In fairness to your doctor or nurse and other patients, please advise us at least 2 hours before your appointment time if you are unable to attend an appointment. There is a ‘no show’ fee charged if no advanced notice is given.
If you require a service that is not listed below please contact us to discuss this.
We are very fortunate to have Nurse Practitioners as part of our clinical team.
A Nurse Practitioner has completed advanced education and training in a specific area of clinical practice combining the best of nursing with some skills from medicine. They can deliver a large proportion of the services the average person needs, in terms of minor acute illness and long term conditions such as asthma and diabetes.
Nurse Practitioners have the same right and access to services as medical staff within the hospital based services even though they work in primary care. This includes being able to refer patients into specialist services within the hospital. They have the right to order the full range of diagnostics they require within their scope of practice and to refer patients for admission to inpatients services following discussion with relevant clinical personnel.
