Welcome to Southside Health
SOUTHSIDE HEALTH HAS IMPLEMENTED BEST PRACTICE INFECTION CONTROL MEASURES WITH THE AIM OF PROVIDING A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR OUR PATIENTS WHO DO REQUIRE A VISIT TO OUR SURGERY
DURING THE CURRENT LOCK DOWN OUR SURGERY IS CLOSING AT 4.30 PM EVERY DAY – THIS INCLUDES OUR PHONE SYSTEM
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN APPOINTMENT YOU CANNOT ENTER THE SURGERY – THE FRONT DOOR IS LOCKED
To maintain our high standards of infection control we have reduced the number of patients coming in and out of the surgery.
Only patients who need a face to face consultation, and who are screened over the telephone first, will be given an appointment – some patients will be seen in the car park where appropriate others may need to be seen in the surgery. WHEN YOU ARRIVE PLEASE DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR – PHONE THE SURGERY OR TOOT YOUR HORN
You may be offered a phone consultation depending on your symptoms and conditions – normal consult fees will apply.
ALL prescriptions will be faxed to your nominated pharmacy.
Please do not call in to the surgery to pick up your script. An account will be posted to you.
The following prescription charges (including administration, postage etc) will apply:
CSC holders – $19 Non-CSC holders – $25.00
The Ministry of Health has advised that at this stage we are only permitted to vaccinate funded patients (those at “high risk” in our community). Stocks are limited and we are currently awaiting further supplies.
Those patients who do have appointments for their vaccination must remain in their cars when they arrive – do not enter the surgery.
Our dedicated staff excel at caring for patients of all ages with professionalism, empathy and integrity. We describe our medical centre as cheerful, hospitable and our facilities as a little bit fancy! Relax in the waiting room on our comfy couches, make a cuppa or read the paper. Our large child entertainment corner will make the trip for little ones a lot easier too.
You can find us at 10F Newnham Street, Rangiora – accessing via the traffic lights at the intersection of South Belt, Percival Street and Southbrook Road – we are really easy to get to and from … plus we have heaps of on-site parking.
If you aren’t already a patient – why not check us out – new enrolments are always welcome.
