Level 4 – Covid-19 Update

August 2021

As of 11;59pm Tuesday 17th August the Wellington region will enter into a 3 day lockdown. .

Consultations will mainly be done over the phone over the next 3 days, if you need to be seen face to face please call the medical centre first. Our front door will be locked and everyone will be asked to wear a mask. If you do come into the building please keep 2m apart from each other, wash and dry your 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. 

You may be offered a COVID-19 test. Please say Yes To The Test, the test is free. Continue to keep track of where you have been by using the NZ Tracer app.

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. 

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.

At level 4 – How you can help us keep everyone safe

You can also help us with this by:

• Avoiding unnecessary trips to the medical centre

• Calling us before you come in

• Answering our screening questions as you enter the building; we are actively not letting people into the medical centre without screening for COVID symptoms, 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

• Not queuing outside the medical centre, respect the 2 metre rule to keep us all safe.
