Christmas 2023 Update

Christmas 2023 Update

We are fast approaching the end of 2023. We would like to take this time to thank you for choosing us as your primary care team. A moment to pause and acknowledge the year that has been – a busy winter for us! We finally said goodbye to our “covid cabin”, and things are returning to ‘normal’. We are all hoping for some sunshine and hopefully a rest after fighting all the winter bugs.

We would like to take this time to thank our staff for all their hard work over the year. We are grateful to our team, going above and beyond in all that they do for UHMC day in and day out. Jo and Tracey our reception/admin team, Emma and Bev our experienced nurses, Phill, Trinh and Flora, our doctors, and the partners Jenny, Nicola and Hollie.

A reminder: The holiday season is fast approaching, please plan ahead and order any prescriptions in the next few weeks to ensure you are well stocked for this time.

Some of our staff are taking some well deserved longer breaks over this time. We have cover in place with our experience team and encourage you to book with an alternate doctor if you have something that needs sorting. We work closely together and communicate carefully amongst ourselves if needed.

Christmas Closure: 
We are closed for the holiday break from 1pm Friday 22nd December. We re-open Monday 8th January.

General updates:
If you have moved recently, or your contact details have changed, please let us know. The easiest way is to email us at with the updates, and we will sort this out.
If you are not on the patient portal we’d strongly recommend you sign up for this. You can access results, communicate directly with us, and request prescriptions and appointments. Our reception team can sign you up today!

As always, if you have any feedback, positive or negative, please get in touch. We are always keen to hear from you, and will do what we can to take feedback on board. Best contact is

Thanks again,
The Upper Harbour Medical Centre Team
