Registered patient Urgent Walk-in Service

We offer an urgent walk-in service for our registered patients between 9.00am to 4.00pm on a Monday and 8.30am to 4.00pm Tuesday through Friday.  Please note that this service is subject to staff availability and if we reach capacity we may close earlier. This service is for urgent needs only.

Please note that as this is an urgent care service, patients will be seen in order of priority and not in the order they arrive.  The team will do their best to keep patients notified of possible wait times.  When you present for our urgent walk-in service you will be triaged by a Nurse and assessed to determine if you need to see a GP or not. 

Please note there is a $5 surcharge for all patients on top of the consult fee.

If you are triaged by a Nurse and informed that you do not need to see a GP please respect their clinical decision.  This service is for urgent needs only.

Please inform the reception staff of the reason for your visit so you can be triaged according to urgency by our nursing team.  If your need is not urgent the reception team will book you an appointment for another day.

If you are unable to attend the walk-in clinic and would still like to talk to a clinician please let our admin team know when you phone in so they can provide some options.

Repeat Prescriptions

Patients may request repeat prescriptions via the myIndici patient portal, leaving a message on our prescription voicemail, in person or through our dedicated email address: prescriptions@cambridgemedicalcentre.co.nz

Please note the following protocols are in place to ensure our clinical team maintain safe repeat prescribing practices:

  • Repeat prescriptions are only available to our registered patients

  • A patient's condition needs to be stable

  • There is at least an annual review to assess for ongoing appropriateness of the medication (please note frequency of reviews may differ depending on the medication you are on)

If you are on a controlled drug, prescribing guidelines may differ and you may be required to have a consult with your GP several times a year.

If one of our team asks you to book a consult with your GP for a medication review please understand that this is for your safety and to ensure the medications you are on are still appropriate for your condition.   

If you are unable to get an appointment for your medication review prior to running out then your doctor may approve a short-term supply to ensure you have continuity of medication up until your appointment.  

We encourage all patients to be aware of when their annual medication review is due and book an appointment in advance.
