Welcome to Shirley Medical Centre


We are supporting Super Saturday October 16th and will be open 9:00am to 12:00pm to vaccinate our community - no appointment necessary. Please support our efforts to get Aotearoa vaccinated.



You can book to have your first or second COVID19 vaccine at Shirley Medical - Tuesday/Thursday morning or Friday afternoon. Please phone 033853149 for an appointment.  If you had your first vaccine elsewhere you can still get your second one with us.  At present the recommendation is a 3 week gap between vaccinations.

We are running appointment only free COVID19 Testing (swab) clinics between 4pm-5pm daily. Please phone 033853149 to book.

Please refer to attached "Do I Need A COVID19 Test (Swab)" below for information on who should get a test.


LEVEL 28th September 2021

Please note while we are in level 2 we request that you please wait in your vehicle and ring reception on arrival to check there is space for you in our waiting room. If you have any respiratory (cold and flu like) symptoms please ring on arrival, stay in your car and a doctor will come out to see you. Phone consults are still available.

Please wear a mask.

Phone consults are recommended (normal charges apply)


At Level 2 please phone as usual to make an appointment with your doctor. We are unable to see unannounced patients except in medical emergencies, please ring ahead.

All patients with respiratory symptoms (cough, fever, runny/blocked nose and loss of smell) please phone to make an appointment. On arrival to the medical centre for your appointment please stay in your car and call us to say you have arrived, and we will come and triage you in your car. You will be asked to wear a mask. You will be offered a swab.

Patients with no respiratory symptoms please phone to make an appointment as usual. You can decide if you would prefer that appointment to be a face to face or a phone/video consult. If you opt for a face to face please stay in your car, phone us on arrival and if we have space you will be invited to wait in the waiting room, if no space is available a nurse/doctor will collect you from your car and bring you into the medical centre. We are taking temperatures on entry to the waiting room as a precaution. Please wear a mask.
