1) Our Professional Commitment to your Care
We are members of Pegasus Health
Our GPs are members of Pegasus Health who support and assist us in the delivery of excellent medical services to you. Their commitment, and our commitment, is to “provide you with the right care in the right place at the right time”.
We belong to the 24 Hours Surgery
This means that when our surgery is closed, you will be covered by the 24 Hours Surgery on 401 Madras Street.
Because we are members of the 24 Hours Surgery you can be certain you will be seen there.
This is part of our commitment to provide 24 hour care to you.
We are Cornerstone Accredited
Cornerstone is a quality certification from the Royal NZ College of General Practitioners.
Cornerstone is a continuous quality improvement programme that supports the development of managerial, organisational and clinical systems as a method to improve quality in the practice team and promote greater accountability to patients.
We are pleased to be part of this accreditation process to achieve the best outcome for you.
Our PHO is Partnership Health Canterbury
A Primary Health Organisation (PHO) is a new way of arranging health care in the community to make sure people get the first level health care they need.
It’s a group of health providers whose job it is to look after all the people enrolled with them.
The government gives the PHOs funding to subsidise a range of health services:
- providing care and treatment when people are ill
- helping people stay healthy
- reaching out to those groups in their community who have poor health or who are missing out on primary health care
We are an international health regulation accreditated practice for travel medicine so we can offer you all travel vaccines, including yellow fever. We give SMART advice for the best outcome. Click here to find out more.
2) Our Personal Committment to your Care
You will be given the attention and quality advice you need. And if it becomes clear you need the services of other community health groups, we are networked with them and can quickly put you in touch with the right people in Belfast, Christchurch or North Canterbury.
We work hard to help you every visit.
MEDIQUAL™ offers the best choices for your health
We have found that people like you become empowered if they are given information. So when you come and tell us about your medical condition, we will help you understand the possibilities and options you now have. And then support you to make an informed decision about your next step. We are in this together.
It is your life and you are in charge. We are here to assist you in making good choices each step of the way. This empowers you. And this is central to how we practice.
3) Our Commitment to the Community
Family is vitally important to you and also to us. So we are active in supporting the family, both in our practice and the communities we serve in the greater Christchurch area and North Canterbury. Family is important … both in North Canterbury and beyond.
At home you have family who will support you. Outside you have friends. Let us become part of your support network. Contact us for an appointment.
