Pre-employment medicals
A customised check of specific health factors before you agree to employ a new staff member:

  • Tailored to your business and hazards on site.
  • Recommended for all new employees.

Depending on your business, your workforce may also need the following pre-employment checks:

  • Alcohol and drug-testing (where precision and/or public safety issues are important)
  • Spirometry (lung function) for any work involving fumes, dust, solvents, fine particles or toxic substances
  • Hearing – for work environments with high levels of mechanical or electronic noise

Annual employee medicals
Follow-up health checks, usually annually, are the best way to be sure your employees’ health is not being affected by their work – helping you keep your valuable staff, and avoid expensive litigation.

The health checks outlined under pre-employment medicals above can also be carried out on an annual basis, signed off by a qualified health professional, so you have the records you need now and in the future.

We can vaccinate your staff against diseases to which they may be susceptible, and/or which could affect your business, such as flu, Hepatitis A and B, and others as needed.

Travel vaccinations
If your staff are required regularly to travel overseas, we have access to up to the minute travel vaccinations and disease advice. Special rates are negotiable for high-use businesses.

Drug testing
On request, we can carry out random testing for alcohol, cannabis, methamphetamine, benzodiazepines, and opiates. Please note – this must be included in your employment agreements before we can carry out such testing.

Laboratory - Test Results

Sometimes your doctor needs to take a sample of blood or urine either to discover what is wrong with you or to measure something in your blood so that the right medication is given to you. These tests could be anything from blood sugar to a full blood count or a sample of tissue to test for cancer.

While urine can generally be tested in the surgery, blood and other specimens are usually sent away for testing at a laboratory. Most results come back within 48 hours unless a very rare test is needed which has to go to a specialist lab further away when it might take a little longer.

In most instances, normal results are not reported back to you unless you have been told otherwise by your doctor. You can ring the practice nurse for results, but please allow at least 48 hours after completion of the laboratory tests before doing so.

IMPORTANT: If your results are normal, you will not be contacted- however we will phone you or send you a letter if your results come back abnormal. Lab results are now accessible via our patient portal.

Standard Payment Terms and Conditions

The Cost of Health Care in New Zealand

Healthcare in New Zealand is a mixture of free services and subsidised services (where patients pay a fee to cover some of the costs). We will always try to ensure all our patients benefit from any funded services that they are eligible for.

Providing health care services and running a medical centre comes at a cost, including wages, building costs and medical supplies. Some services and fees, while subsidised, are in place to cover these costs.

Free and subsidised care is only available to New Zealand residents, with exceptions in some cases for visitors from countries like the UK and Australia as these countries have reciprocal agreements with New Zealand.

Ask our reception team if you think you may be entitled to a funded service for your visit.
