Currently the practice has approximately 7,500 registered patients. The patient mix is predominantly Pakeha (European), along with Maori and high needs patients.
Each GP sees, on average 25 to 30 patients each day, with each patient attending 15 minute-appointments. In addition to this, there are also Nurse-led clinics run within the practice.
You will be supported by eight practice nurses, seven part-time receptionists and a practice manager.
