Influenza (“the flu”) is on the rise in Canterbury. In order to minimise the spread of this contagious virus before you arrive at the medical centre we ask that you check for the following symptoms which are common to the flu virus: fever (shakes or chills), cough, sore throat, muscle aches, headache, runny nose.
If you are experiencing some or all of the above, you may like advice on whether you can manage the flu at home or whether you need to see a doctor.
Please phone Healthline on 0800 611 116 for Nurse Advice, or contact us at the Medical Centre on 338 8179 and advise the receptionist that you think you may have the flu. You will be put through to one of our practice nurses, who will advise you on the next steps to take in the management of your care.
The flu vaccine provided to our patients this year looks to be a good match to the flu strains we are seeing this season and so should provide immunity for most people who have been vaccinated up to 2 weeks ago.
The publicly funded influenza programme closed on 31 August 2014. Influenza vaccine is still available for people wishing to be vaccinated at a cost of $30.
There are some exciting changes happening at Hoon Hay that we believe will make your medical centre an even better place to have as your Healthcare Home. We are working on ways your healthcare teams at Hoon Hay can work better together for your benefit.
You can now select the doctor you would like to see for your consult based on who you think has the best skills or experience to meet the needs of that consultation. Our doctors have special areas of interest like womens health or skin cancer detection for example that you might like to take advantage of – check out Our Team for more information. We still take pride in a personalised service and you can still count on your doctor having a broad understanding and experience of all General Practice problems if you prefer the continuity of seeing your doctor each time. No matter who you chose to see we always take full responsibility for the care of the person in front of us.
We are handily located to the following suburbs:
