Email Consultations

We appreciate that it is convenient to email your GP for medical advice, however to do our best for you, it does take time to review your notes and decide on the best response so $10 fee applies. Prescriptions can be requested from the nurse (nurse@gbmc.co.nz) for only the cost of a script fee.

'DNA' Appointments

When patients do not keep their appointments, or cancel at short notice, we charge the usual consultation fee for those without a reasonable explanation for not arriving for an appointment.

Payments

We require that you pay your account at the time of the consultations.

Payment can be made by EFTPOS, cash or Internet banking and we will process credit card payments for amounts over $100.

We undertake to provide urgent medical services regardless of ability to pay. We encourage you to pay your account at the time of the consultation and additional charges will apply if payment is not received at the time the service is provided:
a $5 non-refundable administration fee will be added automatically.

Plus, a $15 account processing fee if the debt remains unpaid at the end of the following month. This fee covers the administration of our debtors ledger. Outstanding debts may be placed with a debt collection agency - a further fee is applied when the request for debt recovery is made.
