Lake Surgery

Fees and Hours


Opening Hours

Monday to Friday- 8.00am to 5.30pm

After hours

When we are closed, our telephone is answered by a duty surgery or a Registered Nurse at our after hours service. The nurse will give advice about what to do. In an emergency, call 111.

What We Charge

The fees listed are a guideline only. They are the fees usually charged for our standard, 15 minute GP consultations. For longer appointments an additional fee applies. There may also be extra charges for additional services such as driving/insurance examinations or procedures.


*Enrolment and Government Subsidies Fee reductions apply only once funding is confirmed by the Ministry of Health, which may take 2-3 months from the time you enrol with us. Enrolment is where you choose to make us your regular doctor.

We arrange for your medical notes to be transferred from your previous doctor, along with the local health authority (PHO) funding. This means you can then get the subsidised consultation fees.

Not everyone is eligible for enrolment. The eligibility of non-NZ residents for publicly funded health care depends on their work visa status. The Ministry of Health website has a guide to eligibility criteria (www.moh.govt.nz/eligibility).
