We’re providing our service in a new way to ensure you and your whanau remain safe. We're doing our part to support the COVID-19 response so when you phone us or visit the clinic we will ask if you have any cough, cold, or flu-like symptoms or if you're concerned about COVID-19 - let us know. This doesn't mean we think you have coronavirus, it's simply a small step we're taking to ensure we continue to keep our community safe and healthy.
We're a Designated COVID-19 Testing Site
COVID-19 testing is free. Our team is available for Covid testing between 8am-4pm, Monday to Friday. Please drive to the rear carpark when you arrive, then text the number posted on the fence letting us know your first name, surname, date of birth, car registration and that you are here for a Covid test. Please stay in your car while you wait for our response and next steps.
Covid swabs are free for symptomatic patients. They are also free for asymptomatic patients meeting the criteria below -
1) Heathcare or aged group workers
2) Boarder worker group,s including managed isolation and quarantine facilities
3) NZ based air crew

5) High risk groups i.e. Maori, Pasifika, seniors or pre-existing conditions (COPD, high BP, heart disease, diabetes)

Our practice is safe to visit
Safety is our priority. Testing is done in your car where possible or in an isolation room if an assessment is required. This means when you visit us for other medical issues you won’t be exposed in any way. We have strict infection prevention standards in place, meaning staff are regularly wiping surfaces and keeping the practice clean and germ-free.
