 IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Due to a national announcement, all GP appointments will be by telephone.  During your phone consult if your doctor thinks you need to be examined we will make arrangements to see you if necessary. Please DO NOT COME to the medical centre.  To make a GP telephone consultation please call reception on 04-4770014. 

 

PLEASE NOTE DURING THE COVID-19 LOCKDOWN, OUR NEW OPENING AND CLOSING HOURS WILL BE 9AM TO 5PM MONDAY TO FRIDAY

 

CORONAVIRUS (nCoV)

In keeping with the Ministry of Health guidelines, we ask that if you think you may have the Coronavirus, you can contact the dedicated helpline for accurate, up-to-date advice and support

site covid19.govt.nz  or https://www.health.govt.nz/ or call 0800 358 5453 support line.

 

No doubt you are all aware of the CORONAVIRUS situation, and at the medical centre we are taking steps to reduce your risk of transmission so:

 

  • If you are sick with viral symptoms (fever, cough, runny nose, headache) STAY AT HOME and USE THE PHONE - Call us 04 477-0014 an we will organise a phone discussion with one of our clinical staff so you can get the best care and everyone will be safe.
  • Your doctor will try to call you around your appointment time, please have your phone nearby.
  • If your doctor asks you to come to the medical centre, please do not bring additional people with you, the fewer the people in the waiting room, the safer for everybody.

 

It is likely that over time, the virus will spread in our community so it is important to take measures like this now so that the spread will be as slow as possible. The Covid-19 virus is spread by droplets, these are easily passed from person to person by coughing, sneezing and sharing cups and close contact, especially to vulnerable people who may be at Churton Park Medical Care. As with all cold's and flu, the best thing you can do to recover is rest and treat the symptoms, by staying home from work, school and other people who are unwell.

 

Hand-washing is your first-line of protection, cover your cough (cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow) and keep your hands away from your face.  These proven methods do more than anything to keep you safe. Please click on the link below.

Ways to care for yourself at home are:

  • Rest, allow your body time to get better, this can take 1-3 weeks
  • Keep hydrated, replace fluids you lose because of fever and sweating (drink mainly water and avoid tea, coffee and alcohol)
  • Gargle salt water to sooth a sore throat or make a honey and lemon drink
  • Eat light foods when you are hungry
  • Use a damp cloth to cool your forehead and limbs
  • Shower or bathe regularly and keep bedding clean and dry
  • use paper tissues for runny noses, dispose the tissue in a rubbish bin and wash hands immediately afterwards
  • Open windows and keep the room well ventilated
  • Wipe down surfaces daily with hot soapy water
  • Do not share cups or eating utensils
  • keep at least 1 metre away from others and avoid enclosed spaces such as cars
  • If possible, use a separate bathroom from others in the house. (if sharing a toilet with other members, clean well with disposable cloth and cleaning agent after use).

Common symptoms are:

  • Fever - temperature above 38 degrees
  • Fever symptoms such as body aches, feeling hot or chills
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Fatigue, tiredness
  • Diarrhoea

Medication

Influenza is caused by a virus so antibiotics will not help.

Take paracetamol or Ibuprofen to help relieve fever, body aches and headache.

Other medicines such as lozenges or gargles may help to ease symptoms such as a sore throat, runny nose and a cough.

 

If you have:

  • A high fever, that does not come down, especially if you are pregnant
  • Chills or severe shaking
  • Difficulty in breathing or chest pain
  • Purple or bluish discolouration of lips, skin, fingers or toes
  • Seizures or Convulsions
  • Signs of other serious conditions, such as meningococcal disease
