We will remain open during Level 3 Lockdown, however, we will do things a little differently. We ask all patients to phone reception on 09 445 0528 so we can determine whether a virtual, phone or face to face consult is appropriate. We ask all patients that are asked to come in for a face to face consult to sanitise their hands and wear a mask in the waiting room and in the consultation. Non-urgent procedures will be postponed until next week, this includes cervical smears, vaccinations and minor surgeries.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, please phone us on 09 445 0528 to book a COVID-19 swab. You will be asked to park up in your car at the front of the practice. Please do not enter the surgery. If you are unsure, please just call us.
The UK variant may also present with tiredness and aches and not necessarily with upper airway symptoms.
Thank you, with appreciation / Ngā mihi maioha. Dr Pieter
