I’d like to briefly introduce myself. My name is Dr Conor McArdle and I will be joining the team at Hastings Health Centre as a GP at the end of October. I am originally from Ireland, having moved to the UK for my medical training in 2004; and as often happens, found that 15 years later I had not left. I qualified as a doctor in 2011, working in Sussex, Liverpool and London. What I love most about my role is getting to know patients and their families, building relationships and helping to provide individualised care. I look forward to meeting you over the coming months and working with you to ensure that you have the best possible experience from your GP.

Family Violence Programme
The Hastings Health Centre is a safe place to talk about family violence. Our Family Violence Programme was introduced in 2008 in order to continue to provide our patients with holistic care and protect their physical and mental wellbeing. Our family doctors and nurses have been trained to recognise the signs of family violence through asking the right questions. Our programme is supported by the Hawke’s Bay Primary Health Organisation and the Hawke’s Bay District Health Board. If you are suffering from abuse our staff are able to support, advise you of your options and can refer you to the right agency for your protection. If you would like to seek help or are worried about a family member, you can talk in confidence to a family doctor, nurse or support person.
If you are hurting the people you love and need help to stop we can give you information for agencies in our community that will help. You will be provided with this information and our support and will not be judged.
The aim of our Spirometry clinic is to diagnose/confirm lung disease, educate patients, thereby empowering them to self manage their condition with the continued support of their medical team. An initial assessment is done by your doctor or nurse and if appropriate, a referral is made to the respiratory clinic. The clinic, located in the Mairangi Suite on level 1, is run by our respiratory nurse Barb Dooney.
A vasectomy is a surgical procedure for male sterilisation or permanent contraception.
Dr Alan Wright performs this procedure in our Mairangi Suite and takes around 45 minutes. Dr Wright likes to see you initially to discuss the procedure and to do an examination. The vasectomy procedure is booked after this initial ‘chat’.
Please see your own GP if you have a Community Services Card as you may qualify for a funded (free) vasectomy.
For those paying for the procedure, the initial consultation is $60 and the vasectomy procedure is $420.
Dr Wright is an accredited provider for Southern Cross and most insurance companies cover the cost.
To book an appointment please talk to your family doctor to get a referral. If you have any questions please phone Mairangi reception on (06) 873 8580
