Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Level 1

Thank you for your patience as the Practice services has changed over this extraordinary COVID-19 period of time.

With COVID level 1 starting on 9th June 2020, we are planning on services almost going back to normal!

THE EXCEPTION IS IF YOU HAVE A FEVER, COUGH, COLD OR SORE THROAT.
When you phone for an appointment we will make arrangements for you to come to the rear of our building and wait in your car until a doctor comes to fetch you.

We will be doing all the Covid-19 swabs, as the CBAC centres are closing soon. There is NO charge for COVID testing/assessment appointments at present.

For all other appointments our auto door is open as normal, please sanitise your hands and come in and inform reception of your arrival. You are welcome to use the waiting room now (no toys or magazines), or if you want to wait in your car could you tell the receptionist the colour or make of car, so that the staff can find you.

We are taking payments at our reception desk on the day including card, cash and cheque.

We will have the NZCOVID tracer QR code at the front door and at reception shortly – we currently have a sign in system at reception which can be used.

Please continue to use the hand sanitiser available.
