Becoming a patient

The enrolment process

If you would like to become a patient with us, please contact us on (04) 920 0800. 

Our enrolment officer will then be in touch to discuss your eligibility.

Once you have completed an enrolment form and we have registered you as a patient with Ropata Health, you will be entitled to a free 30 minute health check appointment with one of our health care assistants (appointment will only be 15 minutes if we already have your notes).

At this stage we will also request your notes from your previous practice if applicable. Please note no further appointments will be able to be made until we have received your medical notes from your previous practice (within New Zealand).

Why enrol?

Enrolment is easy, costs nothing and benefits you, your family and your community.

When you enrol, you pay less for visits to your regular doctor, and you pay just $5 for each subsidised medicine the doctor prescribes for you.

In addition to this, your doctor’s practice will help you take part in prevention programmes, such as cervical and breast screening, and it will send you immunisation reminders for your children.

The practice will help you to manage conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure and to address other health-related issues, such as smoking, to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
