The team at Ellerslie Medical Centre in Auckland strive to provide excellent quality medical and nursing care in a friendly, accessible environment.

We offer a mixed walk-in and booked appointment service. We recommend that appointments are booked for long term conditions. Our walk-in service is designed for emergencies and acute conditions and over winter it can get very busy.

Our Nurses

Please see one of our friendly practice nurses for health advice, medication queries, discussion of blood results, blood pressure checks, ear syringing etc. Appointments are available for Immunisations, Aclasta and Iron infusions, and other nursing services and should be booked by phoning reception, as extra time needs to be allocated. Regular nurse consultations for dressings, BP checks and smears can be made via the Portal.

Our nurse Felicity has years of experience in taking cervical smears. She is offering this service Tues-Fri 9am-4pm (not days immediately following public holidays).

Our Mission

We value harmony, compassion, communication, collaboration, integrity, fairness, dedication, professionalism, respect, flexibility and life-long learning.

Our goals are to build a welcoming, harmonious environment; to treat all equitably, holistically and with respect; to work with compassion and empathy; to be flexible and adaptable; and to maintain excellence of care by attention to detail, going the extra mile, and life-long learning.

We see our team as our extended family, and our work-place as our second home. We hope that you feel welcome, and that your well-being is valued by our whole team.

Immunisations

We are passionate about protecting babies, children and adults from preventable diseases. Immunisations are offered Mon-Fri, 9am to 4pm (9am to 3.30pm for the 6 week immunisation). Appointments for immunisations are booked by phoning us, not via the Portal, as extra time needs to be allocated by the Reception team.

We Love our Cottage

The cottage dates back to the original village, around 1900. You can see the original Robert Street sign on the Robert Street entrance of the building.

We worked closely with our architect to preserve the character, and we still enjoy the original fireplaces, windows, floors, ceilings and colour scheme. The garden is cottage-style and is professionally maintained.

There is on-site parking, including a mobility parking space, as well as plenty of off street parking. We have disabled access and toilet facilities.
