The Good Medicine Clinic
Fiona's existing patients
Hello! Here I am.
After many years of working at Grey Lynn Family Medical Centre,
I have left to begin my own medical clinic.
I have a vision of how I would like it to be and those of you who
have shared your lives and health with me will know I am not
designed for ‘big box’ medicine. I like the consultation to be
satisfying, careful and enjoyable for all in the room.
The new clinic is located in the happy, welcoming environment of
The Grey Lynn Community Centre at 510 Richmond Rd, Grey Lynn.
You are very welcome to join us.
We are a small clinic - just myself, Nurse Trish Lodge who is
well known to all of you already, kind nurse Helen Morrison and
Dr Vicki Macfarlane who used to work with me some years ago
and is a wonderful and highly skilled GP.
Our aim is to provide high quality, personalised care with kindness
and respect for all in the community and we invite everyone who wishes to have the opportunity to participate in our vision of what really good community healthcare is to join us.
We are a clinic for good and our fee structure is in two tiers. This is to allow access for those on lower incomes along with those who have higher health needs at a government level. For some of you the fee will be less than what you have been paying and for others it is more. I have tried to attach the funding to the need of the person, rather than the Practice.
If you do not qualify for the lower fee and feel you might struggle to pay the increased one, I am open to discussion about this. The idea is for all of us to care about good healthcare access for all in the community.
You are welcome to enrol right now, before we open, and continue being seen at the old Practice as before until we activate your enrolment when we open on June 4, 2018. The books will be closed once we have as many patients as we can comfortably see - for now we are taking new patients so feel free to recommend to others!
Being a GP is an absolute privilege and joy for me and the opportunity to work with Vicki, Trish and Helen in this way is awesome.
It will be great to see you in the new clinic.
Stay healthy meantime!
