Reduced GP Fees at the Tapawera Clinic
We have been able to obtain some funding to help run the Tapawera Clinic on the basis that there is a need for additional health services in Tapawera and the surrounding areas. We are using part of this funding to reduce the cost of seeing the doctor at the Tapawera Clinic.
While funding lasts, prices for patients seen at the Tapawera Clinic will be:
• $30 instead of $46.50 to see the GP.
• $25 instead of $43.00 for under 25s and over 65s to see the GP.
