Our key goals for patient care
Cambridge Family Health is a medical centre in Cambridge which comprises a team of doctors, nurses and administration staff who are committed to providing excellent health care in a relaxed and family friendly environment.
Why enrol with us?
1) Availability: We strive to keep our doctor to patient ratio as low as possible, which enables us to provide good continuity of care, and you do not have to wait long to see your regular doctor.
2) Urgent medical care: We also provide a daily urgent care service, utilising our excellent nurses to triage patients, so that you are seen by a doctor on the day, if medically indicated. NB Patients are required to phone us first so that the appropriate triage can be arranged and the service is offered between 8.30am and 3pm Monday to Friday.
3) Wellness: We have a strong commitment to preventative health, which means that we we are focussed on using our skills and knowledge to help you to optimise your health and well being.
We are proud to be a Cornerstone accredited GP practice
As a Cornerstone accredited GP practice, we have passed a rigorous assessment process by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners. This means that our medical practice delivers quality patient care that has been independently assessed as meeting the gold standards.
COVID-19 practice plan for Alert Level 1- our new normal
We are grateful to our patients for their understanding during these unprecedented times.
For Cambridge Family Health, Alert Level 1 is the new normal.
We will continue to offer phone and video consultations as an option for our patients.
When you phone us for an appointment you will be asked whether you have a fever, cough, cold, runny nose, or shortness of breath. If you answer “yes“ to any of these questions you will be allocated to the doctor seeing respiratory/fever patients that day. You will be asked to remain in your car when you arrive for your appointment and to phone us to let us know when you have arrived. You will enter and leave the building through our side door.
We urge all of you to continue to wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your face.
For people wanting to be tested in Cambridge for Covid-19, we are able to offer testing Monday to Friday from 12.30pm to 2pm. You are required to phone the practice beforehand to arrange a time to come for the test and you will be required to remain in your car for testing unless instructed to do otherwise. We are able to offer this service free of charge to all patients who are enrolled with a GP practice in New Zealand. If you are visiting from overseas and require a test in order to travel back to your country of residence, you will be required to pay for this test and we recommend attending the testing station at Claudelands Event Centre.

What is a Physican Associate?
Physician Associates (PAs) are highly trained healthcare professionals who work as a part of the medical team. PAs are trained under the medical model like doctors and are hired to work as an extension of a doctor under the doctor's delegation. They have existed in the U.S. since the mid 1960s and are currently working and being trialled all over the world.
PAs typically obtain medical histories, perform examinations and procedures, diagnose illnesses, prescribe medication, order and interpret diagnostic tests, refer patients to specialists as required, and first or second-assist in surgery.
As New Zealand is in the early stages of registering PAs as a medical profession here, there will be limitations on their scope of practice. All PAs’ work at Cambridge Family Health is checked and signed off by a GP.
We are keen to establish lasting relationships with our patients and encourage enrolment to help facilitate this.
