National Supply Shortage of Measles Vaccinations

The practice has been advised that national stocks of the vaccine that protects against measles is currently limited and supply is restricted to certain priority groups.

  • Only Children who due and on time for their 15-month and 4-year immunisations as per the national immunisation register will get vaccinated.

  • All other unvaccinated or partially vaccinated children and adults born after 1969 can be placed on a waiting list on request. This group will have to wait until national supply restrictions have been lifted.

  • All Adults born before 1969 are considered to be immune to the disease and do not qualify..

Meningococcal Disease

Warnings about this disease have been circulated to parents through schools and preschools in the city and wider Manawatū after the death of child in Palmerston North Hospital in August 2019.

Meningococcal disease is a bacterial infection that causes two very serious illnesses: meningitis (an infection of the membranes that cover the brain) and septicaemia (blood poisoning).

It can affect anyone – but it’s more common in children under the age of 5, teenagers and young adults. Students in their first year of tertiary education living in hostel accommodation may also be at higher risk. Meningitis is difficult to catch as the bacteria don't live for very long outside of the body. The bacteria passes from person to person through secretions from the nose or throat, for example by coughing or sneezing.

There are different types of meningococcal disease. People can still get meningococcal disease even if they have been immunised against one type of meningococcal disease.

It is important to know the signs and symptoms of meningitis as it can develop quickly. (see PDF brochure below) It can be treated with antibiotics, but early treatment is very important. Act immediately even if you’re not sure it’s meningococcal disease. Ring a doctor or after-hours-centre for advise

We can provide advise, treatment and vaccinations. There are vaccinations for the different bacterial strains of the disease,

  • Bexsero covers B strain.

  • Nimerix and Menactra cover A, C, Y and W strains.

The cost is $90.00 per vaccine because they are not funded. The charges are  exclusive of nurse fee and transport cost

Common Questions

 

How can I become a patient in your practice?

We encourage you to come and visit us in our practice and meet our friendly people at reception. They will be happy to explain to you the new patient procedures and provide you with all the information you need.

Do you receive casual patients?

The practice collaborates with the other local doctors to provide services to casual patients. Give us a call and we will advice you where you will be helped.

Do you offer free consultations for certain patient groups?

Our registered patients with diabetes have access to a free annual review with our nurse. In 2017 our registered Male Maori Men with their age between 35 and 45 years are encouraged to get a free cardio-vascular risk assessments (CVRA) at the practice.

How do I get my test results?

Usually the doctor or nurse will only contact you if there is a concern. Expect results for blood and urine tests to take a couple of days, and up to a week for smears and results of skin biopsies.

Why is there a surcharge for ACC covered medical care?

The Accident Compensation scheme provides comprehensive, no-fault personal injury cover for all New Zealand residents and visitors to New Zealand. This cover includes a contribution to the cost of primary care, but it does not meet all the costs.

Why is there a surcharge for Medication under Special Authority?

For each prescription we have to apply for a special authority from the Ministry. To cover the cost of this additional administrative process there is a $5.00 surcharge required.

It is an on-line information service that can be provided by the practice to patients that are interested in it.  It allows patients to view their health record, request repeat prescriptions and communicate with the doctor. Accessing the service is simple and secure and similar to internet banking. More information detailed information is available on the ManageMyHealth™ website. Our practice offers patient a robust selection of the possible on-line services.
