Caring for you
Our care for you forms one part of a partnership, the other part being how you care for yourself. We provide here a series of articles and other resources published to help you improve your 'wellness' and get the most out of your relationship with us. We will add more items as time goes by.
Regrettably some trips to the ski fields end with a trip to the doctors or after hours medical centre. Dr Alistair Blomley, Medical Director at Riccarton Clinic, says, “Working in a clinic with x-ray facilities, which is on the way home for many people as they return from their day on the slopes, I get to see lots of snow sport-related injuries.”
When you enroll at Riccarton Clinic, you have the opportunity to see any of our doctors but at some point you should choose a particular doctor and you should aim to book appointments with this doctor whenever you need healthcare advice. Over time, you and that doctor will hopefully establish a good working relationship, which is an important aspect of General Practice.
