CORONAVIRUS (nCoV)

For concerns regarding the Coronavirus please refer to the Ministry of Health web site https://www.health.govt.nz/ or call Healthline 0800 358 5453

 

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.
  • If at all possible, please do not bring additional people to the medical centre with you, the fewer the people in the waiting room, the safer for everybody.

 

  • We will be trying very hard to limit waiting times and run on time whenever possible. Please do not turn up more than 5 minutes before your appointment time.  We may be less well able to manage longer lists of problems than usual and may need to ask you to come back for complex problems.  We may not be able to see you if you are late for your appointment , although as usual we will of course do our best.

 

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. 

 

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.
