Level 2 Update

As per the Government announcement, Wellington will enter into COVID Alert Level 2 from Wednesday 23 June at 6pm.

This means we should keep at least 1m apart from each other, wash and dry our hands and sneeze and cough into elbows. If you have cold and flu symptoms, please stay home and ring Healthline (0800 358 5453) for advice on being tested. 

If you have visited any places of interest over the last weekend, please go to the COVID-19 Places of Interest page. To get a test, please call the Wellington Testing Station on 0800 885 022. Please note they are experiencing extremely high volumes of calls; please be patient.

We request that you only call the medical centre if you have a need we can assist you with directly. We are experiencing large numbers of phone calls so please be patient if you are calling us. 

Consultations with your Doctor or Nurse may be held over the phone or on video and these will be chargeable. If a face to face consultation is what is best for you, we have measures in place that this can be done safely.

All prescriptions can be sent directly to your pharmacy so make sure you let us know who your pharmacy is when ordering.
If you are leaving an order on our script line remember to include who your pharmacy is so we can send the script directly there for you pick up.

This is a great time to join Manage My Health so you can order scripts and see your results online.

You can also help us by:

• Avoiding unnecessary trips to the medical centre
• Calling us before you come in
• Answering our screening questions when you arrive at reception; please be kind to the staff doing this screening, it is to keep us all safe.
• Arriving for your appointment at the time arranged; this helps us keep the number of people in the waiting room to a minimum, with social distancing recommended by the Ministry of Health

Nga mihi – We are all in this together.
