We are a Medical Centre based in Mid Canterbury, providing medical care to approximately 2300 registered patients. We are a 1.6-1.8 doctor practice with one other permanent doctor. We have recently attained the Foundation Standards Accreditation Programme certification and are currently working towards Cornerstone Accreditation with the guidance of the Rural Canterbury Primary Health Organisation. The Medical Centre is governed by a Trust Board; this allows our doctors and nurses to concentrate on providing clinical services without the constraints of running the business.
We work from a well-equipped purpose built modern building within the Rakaia Township. We know our patients well and many are from families that have been in the area for generations. We have all of the advantages of small-surgery working which means that continuity of care is strong. We have a dedicated nursing team with acute and chronic disease management skills. As a rural practice we are a PRIME response site which requires us to respond to emergencies within our designated area. The clinicians are supported by an excellent management and administration team.
