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#1704989huiatahi December 13, 2018 at 6:57 pm
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.

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 😥 😥#1705011huiatahi December 13, 2018 at 9:50 pm
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

huiatahi – ummm – please forgive my ignorance but what exactly would I be looking for on Facebook re doctors fees etc??#1705027huiatahi December 14, 2018 at 4:05 pm
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
