Hauraki Plains Health Centre reminds you that as part of good practice we need 2 working days notice to supply a repeat prescription. A repeat prescription costs $22.00. Urgent same day prescriptions will be charged an extra service fee of $10. Please call us a few days before your medication runs out so you can avoid the extra cost.
Hauraki Plains Health Centre is committed to facilitating a fair, simple and efficient resolution of complaints in accordance with The Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers’ Rights 1996 and to use complaints as an opportunity for improvement. Dr Anthony Smit is our complaints officer and is responsible for managing all complaints that the practice receives privacy or otherwise.
