    Basically i was just working on North Shore when I left Manurewa 10 yeas ago it was $17.00 and it is only $18.00 now Moved to Orewa it was $40.00 and ended up until now at $60.00
    So hope fully all will eventually change The Doctors need to be put under pressure from their patients

    Do you belong to facebook  grizelda ?  Where I live someone put on facebook about the shocking charges here on a thread pertaining to local affairs.  It was just amazing the response and the depth of feeling there was out there.  I don’t know whether someone from the local practices monitor the site but it was just after that they put out a patient survey.  I don’t know whether it made a difference.

    Griselda.

    Without a community service card I  also , have never paid more than $18 in Manurewa. Checked on Tuesday & they have no plans to charge extra except for extended appointments such as driving medical. And the service I get from them is extremely good. Feel many doctors are creaming it at cost of patients.

    I went to my doctor last Tuesday –  had a half hour appointment as opposed to the usual 15 min – cost me $102 – that is just his consultation fee -no extras included – so no changes there, unfortunately  😥  😥

    It was on our local grapevine  thread a month or so ago but if you join face book you’ll probably find there’s something similar where you are

    It was on The Te Awamutu  and surrounding areas Grapevine over a month ago so I doubt you’d be able to bring it up again now
