Howick Health & Medical Centre's doctors have a broad range of expertise.
Along with the usual general medical and accident consultations, we have doctors with specific interests in women’s health, children’s health, men’s health, and corporate health. We welcome the presence of a support person in your consultations.
Our consultation time is normally 15 minutes, however, if you intend to bring up more than one issue, we would advise booking a longer period, i.e. 30 minutes for a smear and breast check, or a repeat of your prescription, plus another medical issue you would like to discuss.
You will generally need to see a doctor if you have not been seen recently for a repeat prescription to ensure your clinical safety.
The doctor has a medico-legal responsibility to ensure that appropriate prescribing and the necessary investigations are current to help in the monitoring of the safety of your medications, as well as ensuring age appropriate screening is discussed.
Our practice policy is for you to call the nurse and to allow 24 hours for a script to be available. Prescriptions can be faxed or mailed, though this will incur an additional charge. Click here for online scripts.
