Test results

Our policy at Papamoa Beach Family Practice is that patients will not be notified of normal test results unless otherwise specified by their doctor. If you wish to discuss your results then you need to make an appointment with your GP. If you wish to discuss your results further with the nurse, this will be a nurse telephone consultation and will incur a cost of $15 for 10 minutes.

Alternatively, if you are registered with the Manage My Health Patient Portal you can view your results online.

Doctor appointments

A standard consultation is up to 15 minutes, if you think you may need longer you will need to book extra time for this. This will incur and extra fee.

If you no longer need your appointment please inform a receptionist.

If you are very unwell or injured, let us know so that we can tell you where to park in close proximity to the building then prepare for your arrival.
