We have been excited to meet so many new patients recently. We love to care for you all but right now, we are nearly at full capacity and do not wish to compromise the care we offer to our enroled patients so as of 06 August 2019, enrolment is restricted.
This means we are only taking on new patients who live in our cachment area (North of Main South Road, West of Carmen Road, South of Yaldhurst Road) or those who live in the same home as exisiting patients. We are also able to accept familes whose children are enroled at one of the schools in the cachment area.
A new study has shown a popular class of medication may be associated with an increased risk of lung cancer.
We should like to stress that the risk if real, is VERY SMALL and if you are taking these medications you should continue to do so.
Stopping them suddenly is very dangerous - if you are concerned, please make an appointment. You should not stop taking the medication without discussing it with us first.
Anyone paying the slightest attention to either of the last two General Elections could not fail to notice that the cost of visiting the GP was a key policy issue for pretty much every political party. Each tried to outbid the other in offering lower costs, but is that actually A Good Thing?
We have noticed a fair few people who struggle to contact us because they have no credit on their phone.
To help with this, Hei Hei Health Centre now provides an 0800 number for calls during office hours.
In order to keep costs down, the system works with a callback if you call from a mobile - you will hear a message asking you to hang up, then you are called back automatically. You will still have to wait to speak to reception, but it won't cost a cent!
The free number is 0800 891 396
Unless you have been living under a rock recently, you cannot but have noticed that there is a lot of political debate about whether cannabis should be legalised, decriminalised or made available on prescription.
As ever there is a vast amount of misinformation in the media and online so we thought to try to provide some perspective. Be warned - you may be surprised and may not like what we have to say here but it is as far as can be told, the truth.
