Welcome to Cambridge Medical Centre

We offer a range of general medical and urgent care services, along with minor surgery and specialist nurse clinics. Our team works hard to ensure the best outcome for patients within Cambridge. 
Please don't hesitate to contact us should you have any queries or recommendations for improvement, our Business Manager will be happy to talk with you.


What to do if you test positive for COVID

As we move into the COVID Protection Framework (traffic light system) the risk of getting COVID increases and we will see a lot more cases in the community.  If you test positive for COVID we are here to support you and provide clinical care for you. 

What will this look like:

  • You will be contacted by Public Health to let you know that you have tested positive and you will be given instructions regarding how and where to isolate and for how long
  • Your GP will also contact you to talk through how you are feeling and to discuss a clinical care plan - they will also arrange for a care pack to be sent to you so you can monitor your symptoms
  • You will be contacted on a regular basis by a Nurse or GP (the frequency will depend on your symptoms) - please make sure you have a phone available for these calls and discuss a suitable time with our team so you don't miss the call
  • We will provide you with contact details for both practice hours and after hours support so that you can get in touch with someone if you have any concerns

Please also refer to the following information on the Unite Against COVID website:

Making an appointment

If you need to see a Doctor or Nurse please contact us as we are open and seeing patients.  If you have cold or flu like symptoms you will be triaged by our clinical team to determine how best to support you.
Cambridge Medical Centre has the following screening process:
  • All patients over 12 years of age are required to wear a mask
  • You must scan the QR code to record your visit or complete a manual entry

If you have any cold or flu like symptoms, or have been in contact with a covid positive person please do not attend Cambridge Medical Centre in person - phone or email us and we will be in touch to support you.

We ask that you please follow our process and be respectful of our staff as they work to keep you and the wider community safe.  If you have any questions please ask to speak with the Practice Manager.

If you require a COVID test please see our list of testing centres below.

COVID vaccination record - My Vaccine Pass

My Vaccine Pass is an official record of your COVID-19 vaccination status for use within Aotearoa New Zealand. 
Anyone aged 12 and over who has had 2 COVID-19 vaccinations administered in New Zealand, or who has been given a medical exemption, can now request a My Vaccine Pass. Currently you can only get a My Vaccine Pass if you have had 2 Pfizer doses in New Zealand. 

From 29 November, you can request a My Vaccine Pass if you have:

  • been vaccinated overseas with an approved vaccine
  • received 2 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine in New Zealand
  • a medical exemption.

https://mycovidrecord.health.n...

Your My Vaccine Pass will include your name, date of birth and a QR code. You can save this pass on a digital device, like your phone, or print a physical copy.

Requesting your pass only takes a few minutes and will be emailed to you within 24 hours.  The quickest way to get your pass is through your My Covid Record, but if you cannot access this service you can call 0800 222 478 — have your NHI number ready.

COVID vaccine exemption process

For those of our patients who fall under the mandatory vaccination order and who are wishing to apply for a vaccine exemption please refer to the following Ministry of Health website for the process and criteria for exemption. Please note that our GP's are unable to provide exemptions - their role is to confirm whether a patient fits the criteria for exemption - it is then the responsibility of the Ministry of Health to accept or decline an exemption application.

https://www.health.govt.nz/our...

Consults for vaccine exemption applications will be charged at the standard general medical consult rate.
