The Doctors New Lynn Medical Centre

Welcome to our practice 

We provide FREE COVID-Vaccination Records - please speak with our Reception Team or email to request your copy.

We continue to provide a drive through COVID-19 swabbing service up to 4:30pm during the week. Please note we stop swabbing at 4:00pm on weekdays and at 12pm on the weekend if there is a high demand - otherwise we can offer this service until 2:45pm on the weekend.  Our opening hours are from 8:00am - 6:00pm during the week and 9am - 3pm on the weekends. Booked travel COVID-swabbing services are offered from 9am.

Our COVID-19 vaccination service  - this is now situated inside our medical center - from 8 - 12pm.  Please come to the front entrance to be COVID-19 Screened prior to entering our medical center.  You are welcome to make a booking either through our receptionist, Book My Vaccine site or using our COVID vaccination booking link on our Website.

We are now opening our medical clinic for face-to-face consultations from Monday to Friday. Please be mindful we have a responsibility to screen all patients prior to entry and we have limited capacity for patients in our waiting room as per our physical distancing requirements. Additionally, we ask for your understanding in that we have a responsibility to confirm our patients COVID-19 vaccination status and wellness to determine the appropriate type of consultation.

We have had an extremely high demand for drive through swabbing. If you haven’t received your results via text message please email us and we can follow up for you.  Thank you again for choosing our COVID-19 testing drive through service during this difficult period for our community.

At The Doctors New Lynn we provide a comprehensive, convenient, and very affordable family general practice healthcare service, with pharmacy, radiology department, eye specialists and child care centre onsite as well. We offer a number of specialised programmes, including immunisations, travel vaccinations, ongoing screening for breast and cervical cancer, and wellness and health ageing clinics. Our opening hours are for GP booked appointments and Walk-in Care “no appointment necessary” services. Walk-in Care is for enrolled or casual patients who experience sudden illness, accidents or injuries that do not appear to be life threatening but can’t wait until the next day.

Minor surgery including circumcisions are available along with traditional Chinese acupuncture, and we provide a GP service for residential care facilities. We are fully computerised, allowing us to access laboratory results straight from the lab, and as part of National Hauora Coalition PHO, we can keep our patient fees at a very affordable level. Our staff speak ten different languages including Mandarin and Cantonese.  You are also welcome to visit our  satellite clinic - The Doctors Golf Road - 817 5442 - based at 168 Golf Road, Titirangi.

Where possible, we ask you to

  • book Phone Consults
  • visit on your own rather than with family and/or friends
  • wear a face mask during your visit or we can provide you with one
We have recently updated our telecommunication systems. It means no longer experiencing random disconnections, the ability to leave a voice message, select connection options and providing a direct line for repeat prescriptions. It's our hope the new system will give you with a more positive experience when you phone us.

FREE HIPs and Health Coaches

Our Primary Health Organization is funding our medical centre to have Health Improvement Practitioners (HIPs) and Health Coaches provide FREE social, mental, and clinical support for our patients in both Golf Road and New Lynn. Please contact our Practice Nurse to see how our health care professionals/providers can assist you and/or your family.
