What a year it has been! We would like to thank everyone for their support and patience during these challenging times. Our practice team have had to adapt quickly to continue to provide quality healthcare to our practice population over the lockdowns and different alert levels. We are very proud of how our staff have coped with changes in systems and processes, in particular moving to virtual consultations via telephone and video consultations. These have proved to be popular and we will continue to offer these as an option for our patients.

With the holiday season fast approaching we suggest that you check that you have enough prescription medication to see you through. Please order any repeat prescriptions as soon as possible, via the patient portal or by phoning in, to avoid pre-Christmas congestion. 

If it’s time for your next check-up, or it will be due during the holidays, please plan ahead. Appointment slots before Christmas are filling up fast!

Farewell to Dr Kerryn

The team at MGP are sad to say that Dr Kerryn van Rij will be leaving us in December. Kerryn has had a long association with MGP Limited and she is taking a break from General Practice to do some more study and keep up with her busy young family! We send our very best wishes and we will all certainly miss her.

The team at MGP will continue to care for her regular patients and we wish to welcome Dr Lydia Sulima who will be joining us in February

We wish you a happy, safe and restful holiday season,

From the team at Meadowbank General Practice.
