Welcome to the Belmont Medical Centre
Belmont Medical Centre is a small but comprehensive holistic and Cornerstone Accredited practice and would be glad to offer you the best medical care. We have a team of staff who will work with you on any problem. We welcome any new ideas which would improve your health.
- You will only be able to book Phone consults through our online booking system – Connectmed for the time being. When you phone the surgery we will triage and screen all our appointments for the Doctors and Nurses. We are trying to reduce the face to face doctor appointments by 70%, this means that our doctor may do a telephone consultation with you if this is appropriate to do so.
- We would appreciate your support and patience with our overloaded staff at this time. If you think you may have Covid19 or have been in contact with a confirmed case, or been at a location of interest we ask that you phone the COVID Healthline 0800 358 5453 for advice. The nearest local testing centre is at Northcote Community Centre, College Road, Northcote.
NORTH NORTHCOTE COMMUNITY TESTING STATION 16-18 College Rd, Northcote
Mon to Fri 8.30 am – 4.30 pm
Sat to Sun 8.30 am – 2.30 pm
If you require any medical assistance, please phone our practice – 094451215
We remain open during all Alert Levels — health and medical facilities (such as medical practices and pharmacies) are an essential service. However, our practice is now reimplementing some safety measures as part of our response to Alert Levels .
If you require any medical assistance, please phone our practice. All patients will be screened during their initial phone call to determine their ‘next steps’.
Dial 111 if you need urgent help.
There are also several things you can do right now:
+ Continue or get back to stringent hand hygiene, sneeze and cough into your elbow.
+ If you or a family member are unwell, please stay at home and contact Healthline or your GP about getting a test.
+ Practice physical distancing of two meters wherever possible.
+ Consider wearing a mask in public spaces or places where it is hard to physically distance.
Pre Flight COVID Testing and Health Certificates for flying out of New Zealand – Contact ShoreCare on phone 094867777 selecting the Northcross clinic. They can arrange a time for you to have a test and health certificate consultation. Belmont Medical doesn’t offer this facility.
Once we get back down to Covid-19 Levels 1 & 2 patients can resume appointment bookings through ConnectMed for face to face consultations with our doctors. However we will continue to offer phone consultations, for your convenience. The charge for either phone or face to face consults are the same. Please ring us if you wish to have an appointment with our nurses. Ph. 094451215
Open for Routine Vaccinations, Dressings etc
- We are still open for flu vaccinations, childhood vaccines, wound dressings etc. You may also phone for a repeat of your regular medications and this can be faxed to your local pharmacy. This will be for your 3 monthly medications up to 2 weeks before your medication will run out only, to conserve supply of drugs. All our consultations and prescription fees will remain in place
- Flu vaccine appointments with the nurse will be to prioritise those over 65 years of age and those with a chronic illness. Numbers of patients in the surgery at one time for flu vaccinations will be limited.
Look after yourselves and your family, take care – Belmont Medical team
