We have now enabled our portal for you to book face to face or phone consultations.

We do prefer that you use our patient portal to book your appointment if you are registered but you are of course welcome to phone our friendly admin team to book an appointment as required.

All patients will be asked questions as to whether you have any cold or flu symptoms to enable us to book you with the appropriate team.

We have now re-instated most of our services, please do not hesitate to contact our reception team to enquire.

We are performing COVID swabs as required.

  • Prescriptions and laboratory forms are unable to be collected from the clinic.
  • Prescriptions will be e-mailed to your pharmacy of choice and an invoice will be e-mailed to you.
  • Laboratory forms are sent direct to the lab and will be available at any branch of Southern Community you choose to attend.
  • Prescriptions are still only able to be given when due.
  • We are accepting all methods of payment including cash.

Enrolling With Us

We are accepting new patient enrolments.

You are not able to choose your doctor as not all doctors are enrolling or are enrolling limited numbers – we will allocate one to you.

To enrol simply download and complete the enrolment forms on our enrolment page or come into the clinic and we can provide them for you.


Appointments can only be made once all your paperwork and identification requirements have been completed so please be aware this may take a few days.

Patient Portal

The Papanui Medical Centre encourages patient to register on our Patient Portal.  This gives you the ability to make appointments, request prescriptions, view blood tests results all online and at a time that is suitable for you.

Registration is simple – please select our Patient Portal link above.  Patients registering this way can make appointments online and request prescriptions.  To increase your access to be able to see your blood tests results and recently prescribed medications please provide photo identification to the clinic.

From September all prescriptions are to be ordered via the Patient Portal.


Our friendly team are here to help.
