Kia Ora – Welcome to Wakefield Health Centre

He aha te mea nui o te ao, he tangata, he tangata, he tangata

We are a progressive and innovative family medical practice in the heart of Wakefield, New Zealand.

Our dedicated team of experienced doctors, nurses and support staff aim to provide the highest standard of medical care possible in a friendly and approachable way.

We develop long-term relationships with our patients to help them maintain and manage their health and well-being.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

New Zealand is prepared and ready to deal with a COVID-19 outbreak should it occur here. The risk of an ongoing outbreak is currently (at the time of going to press) low-moderate, but we are monitoring the situation closely.

Symptoms

Symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to a range of other illnesses such as influenza. Having any of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you have COVID-19.

Symptoms include:

  • fever
  • coughing
  • difficulty breathing.

Difficulty breathing is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention.

We don’t yet know how long symptoms take to show after a person has been infected, but current World Health Organization assessments suggest that it is 2–10 days.

If you have these symptoms and have recently been to mainland China or have been in close contact with someone confirmed with COVID-19, please telephone Healthline (for free) on 0800 358 5453 or your doctor immediately.

DO NOT TURN UP UNANNOUNCED AT THE SURGERY – It is essential for the prevention of spread of the virus. Phone us and we will arrange advice and a plan.
