Wadestown Medical Practice
23/06/2021 - In light of the recent COVID19 case in Wellington, we are exercising physical distancing. Please wait outside/in your car for us to bring you in for your appointment. Let us know if we can make your appointment a phone or video consultation instead of face to face.
If you have been travelling overseas or you have been in contact with a suspected case of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and you have flu-like symptoms or feel unwell, please do not come to the Medical Centre. Instead, please contact the Covid-19 helpline on 0800 358 5453
In Level 1 Wadestown Medical Practice remains open and fully operational with some safety protocols in place.
If you have respiratory symptoms (cold, flu, cough, sore throat, fever or worsening asthma) please do not come into the practice. Stay home and call us to tell us about your symptoms.
If you are well when you book your appointment but then develop respiratory symptoms (even if your appointment is about something unrelated) please call us to speak with a nurse before coming to your appointment.
We are still offering video and phone consultations, so if you are in self isolation or quarantine, or if you think your appointment will be suitable, please ask for video or phone consultation.
If you do come to the practice for an appointment (and you have respiratory symptoms) we will ask you to wait in your car or outside and phone or knock to let us know you have arrived.
If you have concerns about being in the waiting room and would prefer to wait outside or in your car you are welcome to do so.
Hand sanitiser and face masks are available at the practice for those with respiratory symptoms, or if you want this added protection while you are waiting for your appointment.
Please note: COVID19 testing is carried out from our outside room. If you do pass our building during the time when testing is happening please do not be alarmed - there is no risk to passersby.
Thank you for your patience as we do our part to keep the community safe from the spread of COVID19.
Take care and kia kaha,
The Team at Wadestown Medical
COVID19 VACCINES NOW AVAILABLE HERE
Wadestown Medical Practice is proud to announce that we are now offering the Pfizer COVID19 Vaccine. In order to best protect our community from COVID19 we are making the clinics for the vaccine a priority from 5:00pm to 7.30pm on weekdays and from 9.30am to 1pm on Saturdays. You MUST have a booked appointment to receive your vaccines.
This will mean that our medical centre general practice appointments will finish a little earlier in the afternoon, in order for our hard working staff to run these clinics safely and efficiently.
Please do not contact our medical centre reception about this. Instead we have a dedicated COVID19 Vaccine Clinic team who you can contact with all your details to arrange both of your vaccines, their details are:
Phone between 9am and 12pm weekdays: 027-380-1236 or text 027 380 1236 any time with your name and NHI number.

What to expect when you come for your COVID19 Vaccine appointment:
You must book an appointment in advance, no walk-ins will be accepted.
There is no charge for your vaccine.
Only those 16 years and over can have the vaccine.
You will need to wait here at least 20 minutes after having your vaccine.
You must be well on the day of your vaccine.
You may bring a support person if absolutely necessary but due to our small waiting area it is best if only those who have an appointment for a vaccine are here.
Please come on time for your appointment and do not miss your appointment so that your vaccine does not go to waste.
If you are unwell on the day or discover you cannot make your appointment you will need to call or email our COVID Vaccine team to reschedule. Give us as much warning as you can!
Please wear clothes that enable our vaccinators to easily access your upper arm. While you wait for your vaccine you can help us by removing your coat/outer layer(s) in preparation for your vaccine.
You will need to wait at least 2 weeks after any vaccine before you can have your COVID19 vaccines. Please let our COVID Vaccine team know if you have had a vaccine recently.
Please let us know if you have ever had any severe reaction to anything in the past eg. Throat swelling, anaphylaxis or severe rash. Or if you have any blood disorder, as we may have to monito your vaccine appointment differently.
