You are entitled to enrol at the clinic if you are eligible, according to the New Zealand Ministry of Health's guidelines on eligibility. This will give you the right to be considered for publicly funded health or disability services which can either be free or subsidized.
However, there are certain clinical and other assessment criteria in this regard. For more information on eligibility, refer to http://www.health.govt.nz/new-zealand-health-system/eligibility-publicly-funded-health-services
Enrolment is a process where you register with a medical practice as your preferred provider for the management of your primary healthcare. This long-term relationship aims to improve your healthcare outcomes. You also qualify for lower fees upon enrolment.
You can only enrol with one practice at a time but you can change to another doctor any time if you wish.
Should you not be eligible for funded healthcare, you are able to access the services of the clinic as a casual patient. Please refer to the fees schedule in this regard.
It is to be noted that enrolment and funded healthcare at the clinic is only applicable to general medicine consultations and related treatment and does not include functional medicine consultation fees.
Once you have completed the form, please return it to the clinic reception.
Please bring along proof of eligibility, which will either be your New Zealand passport, or birth certificate and ID (If you were born in Australia or NZ) or your country passport and the eligible visa.
It is a Ministry of Health requirement that all patients wishing to enrol at Glenfield Family Doctors complete and physically sign an enrolment form. If a patient is under the age of 16, this must be done by a parent or guardian.
