A warm welcome from Cromwell Medical Centre

Cromwell Medical Centre is the largest and most established medical services provider in Cromwell, with highly qualified medical and nursing staff.

We have useful links on our site, general health information, an overview of the wide variety of services that we offer.

Existing patients can contact us by email for appointment enquiries and to request repeat prescriptions.

Please Note: Enrolments are open, and we can see visitors when capacity allows.

We look forward to seeing you.

Lab Test results:

You may require laboratory tests including blood tests. Our practice policy is that either a GP or a Nurse will only phone you if you have significant abnormal results or results from tests that require a change to your health management. You will NOT be contacted if your results are in normal range and do not require any changes as a result.

You can access your lab results once they have been checked and filed, via the patient portal. If you wish to sign up to the portal go to the link on the website or ask reception about how to register for the portal.

Breast Screening

Free breast screening mammograms are provided to eligible women aged 45-69 by Breast Screen Aotearoa every 2 years. For Cromwell patients this is done in Alexandra or Frankton.

New Zealand wide, they diagnose 200 cases of breast cancer every 6 weeks. Another 200 women will find their own breast cancer every 6 weeks.

No breast screening mammograms have been available over the lockdown, however the programme has now restarted – if you are overdue a screening mammogram please contact Breast Screen Aotearoa on 0800 270 200 if they have not contacted you by phone.

If you have noticed a breast lump please make an appointment with your doctor at CMC.

Cervical Screening

Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. Regular cervical screening and human papillomavirus (HPV) immunisation are the best ways to protect yourself.

Screening allows for early detection, follow-up testing and treatment. It finds early warning signs before they become cancer.
