Our Medical Team have over 330 years of collective experience. You’re in safe hands ❤️



My name is Dr Anya Beale and I am a GP at the Cromwell Medical Centre. I want to reassure all of our patients that we will be doing everything in our power to provide care and support. It appears that we are going to face some challenging times ahead. The Cromwell Medical Centre is currently fully staffed and we are adding extra resources as we speak.

What will be very important going forward is to ensure that our medical team are kept fit and able so that we can continue to provide medical services.

As a result we have decided to introduce some changes in line with recommendations from the various government agencies and the Royal College of New Zealand GPs. I would like to outline these changes:


We have locked our electric doors at the entrance to the medical centre and closed our waiting room. It will be necessary for all patients to ring and discuss their needs prior to any appointments being made. We will be trying to keep physical contact with patients to an absolute minimum and where practicable we will be offering phone and video consults as our preferred option.

Please call 03 445 1119 to speak with a member of our staff. Please be patient if you cannot get straight through as we are expecting to field a very large number of calls in the coming days. We will make every effort to help you and will have extra staff available to answer phones and process patient requests.

We will be putting in place medical protocols to deal with patients who require a physical consult. This is designed to keep the patient and our staff free from infection. 


If you require a repeat prescription please try and use our online portal (Health 365). If you are not currently registered with Health 365 please call the medical centre to discuss with our admin team. I would strongly recommend as many people as possible register as it is a very efficient way to get repeat prescriptions.


We have recently received our first batch of flu vaccines (these do not assist with prevention of COVID-19) and will be commencing with our flu clinics for over 65’s and medically compromised patients this week. Please ring to make an appointment. We will notify other age groups as to clinics as they become available. I strongly recommend we all vaccinate for the coming Winter season.


We will be providing regular information updates to our patients over the coming weeks. Please check our Facebook site “Cromwell Medical Centre” as well as our regular radio broadcasts on Radio Central.


Did you know that we can order your prescriptions to be delivered directly to your home? Please contact our reception staff on 03 445 1119

Flu Clinics

We are getting lots of people through our Flu Clinic. Currently offering appointments for vaccination to Over 65’s and those who are medically compromised. Please call 03 445 1119 to make an appointment.
