Enrolment

21.2.19   We are re-opening our books for new enrolments with restrictions:

  • We will not re-enrol any patient that has transferred away from Rolleston Medical Centre in the last 2 years – unless it was as a student (boarding/university) or significant relocation e.g away from Canterbury. This is to prioritise access to those who may be new to the area, and are not enrolled at a medical centre in the area.
  • In order to provide a service for our locals, those wishing to enrol must be currently residing within the areas of Rolleston, Weedons, Dunsandel, Burnham or Broadfields.
  • If you live closer to another medical centre- Darfield/West Melton/Lincoln/Leeston then your enrolment will not be accepted.
  • Non-New Zealanders must provide a copy of their passport and visa when enrolling.
  • You must be enrolled BEFORE you can make an appointment. Allow 2-5 days for your enrolment to be processed. We suggest you enrol BEFORE you require our services.
  • Only some of our doctors are accepting enrolments. Reception will advise your allocated doctor.
  • It is expected that you pay on the day for any services you use.
  • We do not offer enrolment forms on our website or by post. If you wish to get an enrolment form, you will need to collect one from reception.
  • This process will be constantly under review to ensure our current patients can continue to get appointments when needed in a timely fashion.
