Updates from the Practice Team

Fee Changes

Sep 05 2016
As with everything, costs are going up. From the 1st September, there has been a small fee increase for patients aged 25 years and older. The good news is that IBMC still has lower fees than other 'like' GP practices. If you need to know more about the fees, please refer to the fees page on the website or ask reception the next time you come in for our schedule of fees.

Change of Doctors

Sep 05 2016
It is with sadness that Dr George Karageorge has left us to take up a partnership at another GP practice and we wish him well. The exciting news is that we have another Doctor coming to join us permanently on the 8th November - more details to come. In the meantime we have other doctors working with the team to provide GP services until the new Doctor starts.

Access to your Medical Notes

Sep 05 2016

If you are registered and activated on ManageMyHealth, you are able to access your medical notes in addition to making an appointment with your doctor, request your repeat prescriptions, see your results etc. If you would like to utilise ManageMyHealth, the registration process is quick and easy. All you need to do is talk to your doctor or a member of the IBMC team about registration or you can request a registration form to be emailed to you. Email us at reception@ibmc.co.nz. Note you will need to have your own email address and not one shared with other family members.


Zero Fees for Under 13's

Jul 01 2015
From the 1st of July Island Bay Medical Centre will no longer be charging standard consultation or ACC fees with a GP or Nurse for children under 13 who are enrolled in our practice.  There will still be charges for casual patients and non-residents.  Some charges will still apply for items such as travel vaccines, minor surgery or house visits or where consumables are used in the course of treatment.

Shared Care Record is live

Nov 03 2014

From 7 April 2014, a summary of your health records will be immediately available to hospital clinicians and afterhours GPs, as the electronic Shared Care Record is launched in Wellington, Porirua and the Kapiti Coast.

The Shared Care Record lets authorised health care providers, such as after hours GPs and hospital doctors, access a summary of information from your GP.

Information like your test results, medical conditions, allergies and prescribed medications will be shared. The information will be available at any time, even if our medical practice is closed.

The information is stored securely in New Zealand and all access to the information is recorded and routinely audited.

You can choose to withhold some or all of your information. However, if you choose to withhold your information, health professionals involved in your care, for example in an emergency or after hours situation, may not immediately have information available and this could delay appropriate treatment and mean additional tests are needed.

If you don’t wish other health providers to have access to your Shared Care Record, you can opt-out by calling us on 0800 727 664, telling your GP, or sending a letter to the freepost address below:
