Latest News

Coronavirus Information. Please see the 'News' tab, above, for details.

Covid Level 2 lockdown.

The Kaiapoi Medical Centre will remain open over any level of lockdown.

In the interests of patient safety during lockdowns we will do mainly phone consults if appropriate, but we will still see people face-to-face if necessary. During lockdowns do not come in without phoning us first on 03 327 5115. If you have any symptoms of cold or flu, please call us for advice.

Patient Portal Appointments During Lockdown

The Appointments function on the portal is disabled over the period of lockdowns, as we need to triage appointments.

COVID-19 Vaccination

Vaccination against COVID-19 is now being done by those in General Practice, as well as in the main vaccination centres.

We have joined this programme, but only in a limited capacity - as we have to maintain our normal services to patients using our existing staff - and only for patients who are enroled with us.
Vaccination will also occur mainly within our normal hours of opening.

If you wish to request vaccination at the Kaiapoi Medical Centre this can only be done by phoning for an appointment on 03 327 5115 between 8:15am and 5pm weekdays, and not through any online booking system.

The first place for people to seek vaccination still remains via the Ministry of Health, by phoning 0800 282 926, or by using Book My Vaccine online.

For a useful site to see where available appointments might be with vaccination providers near to you, try looking on: Vaxx.nz

This also has information on drop-in centres and drive-through options.

Flu Vaccination

We now have influenza vaccine available for all ages. If you do not fall into one of the funded groups, the cost is $30 - with a discount for family groups. Please phone for an appointment

New Practice Software

The Kaiapoi Medical Centre upgraded its core patient management software in the last week of February 2021. As part of this process we moved from having our Patient Portal managed by a separate company (ConnectedMed) to one is that managed by us. This has involved quite a bit of learning for our staff, both admin and clinical - a process which is still ongoing.

Until the changeover was completed, our online Patient Portal was unavailable. Now this has been mostly achieved, we have been able to restart it. The Portal allows patients to make appointments online, and to make requests for repeat prescriptions. Those who registered with the previous portal will need to re-register with the new one - which is called MyIndici. Registration is done online, and by using an email address that is recorded as part of your existing patient record. Each person requires their own individual email address.
