New patient portal @ Whitby Doctors is not to our required standard

Apr 01 2019

Since last week we have a new Patient Management  System called Indici in place.

The patient portal is not working to the standard we were used to with Manage My Health. We first want to solve any issues we have before signing up existing or new patients to My indici.

Please keep an eye on our website. We will update this when we are registering patients to the new patient portal.

New computer system @ Whitby Doctors from 25 March

Mar 18 2019

For the upcoming two weeks there will be less appointments available because all staff will be trained to learn a new patient information system called Indici. The reason for us to implement a new system is it will give our patients and our-self better service options in the future.

We will be closing at 4 pm this week on Wednesday (20/3) and Thursday (21/3)

We are expecting there will be some minor problems and we appreciate your patience with our staff.

Kind regards, Miranda Wassenaar ( Practice manager)


 

Measles update 18/3/2019

Mar 18 2019

Measles Update as at 18th March 2019

Currently there are no known cases in the Wellington region.

We are vaccinating children at 15 months and 4 year as usual. The advice is not to bring the vaccines forward at this stage. 

If you are over 50 years you are deemed immune if you grew up in NZ. 

Born after 1968 1 measles vaccine over the age of 12 months gives 95% immunity.

We are receiving phone calls from adults unsure of their immunity. For some we can check your notes, please email  (enquiries.whitbydoctors@gmail.com) if you would like this option or use our patient portal. Allow a week for the reply currently.

It is recommended adults born after 1968 have documented evidence of 2 MMR's (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) given after 12 months of age. 

Our current priority is children, adolescents and young adults who have had no doses.  There is enough vaccine supply for this currently. 

Once we have full stock available we will encourage 2nd doses.
