Good street medical has elected to practice from an attractive colonial cottage situated close to the town centre with plentiful on site parking.

The surgery is rather ‘tardis like’ with 2 large consulting rooms’ 3 treatment rooms, large reception/ waiting room and 2 administration rooms. There is a (disability) toilet.

Our patients have enjoyed continuity of care with the founding partners practising from Good Street for many decades.

The surgery is well equipped and Foundation accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners.

Good Street Medical works as a team and realises the importance each member plays in ensuring the best possible health care delivery to our patients.

Leanne - Health Improvement Practitioner (HIP)

Kia ora koutou katoa, My name is Leanne Willett-Hall. I am a Health Improvement Practitioner (HIP) working alongside staff at Good Street Medical Centre. I provide a free accessible 30-minute, brief intervention session to patients enrolled at the clinic.

I am based in the Good Street Medical Centre, Tuesday and Wednesday's. I provide advice and support to clients by developing individualised plans and goals, promoting self-management and connecting people to other services they may need.

I work closely with your General Practitioner (GP), Nurses and local community agency support workers, ensuring that people can access the full range of help they need to manage their wellbeing.

Additionally, I encourage and help patients to maintain behaviour change to increase their wellbeing. I focus on a strength-based and holistic approach in sessions.

The new model "Te Tumu Waiora" (to head towards wellness) allows ‘warm handovers'. This means your GP or Nurse can offer someone who is experiencing mental distress or addiction issues the option of seeing the HIP in the same location quickly. A support plan is developed, with follow up as needed, tailored to individual circumstances. For some people the initial session is enough to provide the emotional or behavioural support needed.

You can access the service by contacting Good Street Medical Centre reception 03 313 8262 and book a free 30-minute appointment.

Available Tuesday and Wednesday all day.

The practice nursing team is an essential part of Good Street medical. The nurses have many roles including triaging acute patients, being the team responsible for many of our health prevention activities (diabetic care, monitoring chronic diseases, being responsible for recall and immunisation programmes, leading our cervical screening programme) in addition to the usual practice nurse roles in dressings wounds etc.

Jo has been with the practice for many years and is responsible for behind the scenes activities that ensure the smooth running of the practice. Jo will be happy to discuss any administrative issues and is the first point of contact should you wish to offer any comments regarding your health care delivery

We are a patient orientated practice and always welcome comments. We strive to meet expectations, however if we fall short please tell us and we will try to remedy the issues.

Your first point of contact will be our friendly reception staff team. They have a difficult job and juggling many appointment books is a challenge. They are entrusted to ensure a smooth flow of patients throughout the course of the day. They treat our patients with empathy and respect and we trust you will reciprocate this.

We always try to accommodate patients in a timely way. However, if you need to be seen urgently this may mean seeing the first available doctor and your ‘fit in’ appointment may be triaged by the nurse to ensure you receive the most appropriate care.
