To protect our most vulnerable patients, those with medical problems and the elderly, all patients will be screened for respiratory symptoms.
If you have respiratory symptoms you may be required to have a COVID swab taken before any face to face consultation.
Only patients with a booked appointment will be granted access to the medical centre.
We hope you will understand our need to keep all patients and staff safe. Enjoy Level 2 everyone!
We have now successfully vaccinated most of our more elderly members of the community and those medically compromised. As from Monday 27th April we are able to offer flu vaccine appointments to all of our other registered patients.

Free breast screening mammograms are provided to eligible women aged 45-69 by Breast Screen Aotearoa every 2 years. For Cromwell patients this is done in Alexandra or Frankton.
New Zealand wide, they diagnose 200 cases of breast cancer every 6 weeks. Another 200 women will find their own breast cancer every 6 weeks.
No breast screening mammograms have been available over the lockdown, however the programme has now restarted – if you are overdue a screening mammogram please contact Breast Screen Aotearoa on 0800 270 200 if they have not contacted you by phone.
If you have noticed a breast lump please make an appointment with your doctor at CMC.

You’ll be given an appointment time and one of our nurses or doctors will call you back. If things can’t be settled over the phone, we will arrange a time for you to come to the Medical Centre to be seen.
