Enrolled Patients of Suspended GP can Still Access Primary Health Care Services

Patients, who had registered to Hamilton’s controversial GP Suresh Vatsyayann, are allowed to access the services of primary health care.

New Zealand Medical Council has ordered Dr. Vatsyayann to stop the practice from today at his medical centre, but his Family Clinic is still open.

Dr. Vatsyayann’s medical centre is the part of Toiora Primary Health Organization Coalition. To provide nursing care to the patients, registered nurse is also available at the clinic.

Anglesea Accident and Medical Centre in Hamilton is being referred to the patients, who require emergency GP services.

Some patients may prefer to go to other medical centers in Hamilton, which provide low cost access to primary care and they are funded by Waikato DHB.

May be an additional GP will be available at the clinic, who will provide full GP coverage during normal working hours, as the negotiations are still going on.

In addition to this, Dr. Suresh Vatsyayann has once again decided to stand for the position of Mayor and he has promised that he will make Hamilton "the city of dreams".

"Hamilton will be the safest city on earth, no drugs, zero crime, every old person will be respected, every tangata whenua will be respected, dignity will be maintained and every nasty person – including the media and politicians – will be thrown out", Dr. Vatsyayann said yesterday.
