Yesterday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced NZ was to shift to Alert Level 4 at 11:59 PM in response to a positive community case.
As you probably know by now, the Government recognises health and medical facilities (such as medical practices and pharmacies) as essential services. We always remain open — even in a Level 4 lockdown.
If you require any medical assistance, please phone our practice. All patients will be screened during their initial phone call to determine their’ next steps’. If you have a booked appointment, our team will be in contact.
Dial 111 if you need urgent help.
Most consultations will happen over the phone (or by videoconference, FaceTime, Skype, etc.) to stop any risk of the disease spreading by person-to-person contact. If a face-to-face meeting is required, our team will organise this with you.
