Welcome to Marsden Medical Practice

Marsden Medical Practice - visit us at our new website www.marsdenmedical.co.nz

Marsden Medical Practice is a traditional general and family medical practice situated on the corner of Marsden Avenue and Mt Eden Road in Mt Eden Auckland. There is ample street parking both on Marsden Avenue and directly in front of the main entrance on Mt Eden Rd. We are New Zealand trained health professionals with three doctors and two registered nurses committed to traditional general practice. The practice has existed since WWII with initially solo practitioners practicing out of the cottage behind the present clinic. Marsden Medical Practice now comprises eight staff. We are all dedicated to the traditional values of comprehensive personal medical care and will strive to meet your medical need whenever and whereever that need arises.

History

The first practitioner began practicing from the house on the corner of Marsden Avenue and Mt Eden Rd shortly after the end of World War two. During the 1950s Dr Clifford James returning from Missionary Medical services in the Solomon Islands set up practice in the house at 785 Mt Eden Rd and subsequently in the cottage behind the house in Marsden Avenue.  In the 1960s the surgery was run by Dr Doug Colonna and subsequently Dr Philip Galloway.  Dr Lello purchased the practice in 1994 when Dr Galloway retired from General Practice to pursue psychiatric training. General Practice in New Zealand has undergone some major changes in the last decade. With increasing costs and decreasing health subsidy in primary care there has been a tendancy for practitioners to form larger practices for the economies of scale. There has been a greater use of independent nursing within Family practice teams and, like in all professions, a greater reliance on information technology.

Registration with your family doctor.

Members of your family may not have had any reason to visit the surgery and it may well be that the surgery doesn’t have basic information. Increasingly, access to publically-funded health services is dependent on registration with a General Practitioner. It is becoming more important to register with your local GP, a concept that is common in the UK and some other countries. Read more....
