In an emergency dial 111


Haere mai! Check out our Meet the Team page for more information on the GPs available to register with at The Terrace Medical Centre.

We continually assess our ability to take on new patients and are happy to answer any questions you may have about our fees or enrolment.

If you would like to enrol with us, please ensure you read all of the information on this page before completing our online enrolment forms. Alternatively, you can reach out to us to request hard copies or PDF copies of our enrolment forms. 

One of our friendly receptionists will be in touch with you if there are any issues with your enrolment, or otherwise to let you know once your enrolment has been processed.

New Patients

We require all new patients to see a nurse for a New Patient appointment before your first GP consultation. This nurse appointment is to go over your medical history and take base-line measurements such as height, weight, and blood pressure, so that you and your doctor can then focus on dealing with your concerns.

We encourage you to book in for your New Patient nurse appointment as soon as you are enrolled with us to get this out of the way. The standard nurse appointment fee of $44.50 applies. 

A New Patient appointment is an important part of completing the enrolment process with us. If you need to see a GP urgently before you can complete your enrolment and have your New Patient appointment, we can see you as a casual patient and the non-funded appointment fee will apply.

National Enrolment Service (NES)

What is the NES?

The National Enrolment Service (NES) is a secure database which provides a single source of truth for all national primary health organisation enrolment data. It allows health services to maintain and update patient identity and enrolment information. 

Who can view and update enrolments in the NES? 

Only those organisations authorised by the Ministry of Health can use the NES web services to access NHI and enrolment information. Health providers and their authorised staff can view and update NES enrolment and NHI information. 

Why does enrolment in the NES require an NHI number? 

The NHI number and NHI information is used to confirm your identity:

  • An NHI number enables important health information about you to be shared between healthcare service providers if required. It is important that the NHI contains your most recent information so that when other providers you may visit (e.g. another doctor, the hospital, or an after-hours medical centre) access the NHI to confirm your identity, they are able to find the correct person. 

  • Your age, gender, ethnicity and deprivation quintile (based on your address) recorded in the NHI are used for the calculation of healthcare funding when the NES is used as the source of enrolment information. A residential address needs to be recorded on the NHI for you so that you can be allocated to a district health board (DHB): e.g. for health funding allocation purposes. If you request that your residential address is kept confidential, we can record “Request address kept off NHI.

Primary Care Patient Experience Survey (PES)

Our practice participates in a national survey about people’s health care experience and how their overall care is managed across the health system. Taking part is voluntary. All new patients enrolling at a practice can indicate whether they would like to be included in the survey or not and confirm their contact details for the survey if they do. These preferences are entered into the NES. Existing patients are asked about their preferences relating to the survey when they attend for an appointment during the survey week (quarterly). Practice staff will enter their preferences into the NES when they visit. 

Your responses to the following questions can be recorded in the NES: 

  • I do not wish to participate in the Patient Experience Survey 

  • What is your preferred cell phone number to text the survey invitation to? 

  • What is your preferred email address to send the survey invitation to? 

Please speak with a staff member if you have any concerns about your information or the privacy of your information.
