We are your local community practice!
The Ngaio (Myoporum laetum) is a smallish tree found in coastal and lowland forest areas throughout New Zealand. It is very common around Wellington's northern suburbs. The Ngaio is easily identified by the leaves' oil glands, which are visible when held to the light. The flowers, which usually occur from mid spring to mid summer, are white with small purple spots. The Ngaio tree - according to our survey of a group of our patients under 13 - is the best in the world for climbing.
The Ngaio Medical Centre offers a full range of general practice and primary health care. There are three women and two male doctors each with a variety of postgraduate medical degrees and diplomas. They are all members of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners, which insists on a three-year maintenance of professional standards accreditation cycle.
The doctors are supplemented with four experienced practice nurses. Their role in family medicine is steadily expanding. The medical centre's enlarged treatment area reflects their role.
