COVID-19

Henderson Medical Centre remains open under our normal hours during alert level 2.5.  At this time, however we are still encouraging phone and video consults wherever possible.  You can book these online via www.connectmed.co.nz or by calling us on 09 837 1110.  Please also bear with us when booking a face to face consultation as our lovely Receptionists will need to ask you some important questions.  Please answer these as honestly and accurately as you can.

We would also like to inform our patients that Henderson Medical Centre has become a Designated Swabbing Practice.  Rest assured though, that we have strict procedures in place to keep any respiratory patients completely separate from other patients coming to see us for other concerns.  Our clinic has been re-organised so that anyone with possible Covid-19 symptoms enters through a separate entrance which is isolated from the rest of the clinic.  Patients coming through for non-respiratory health concerns, immunisations etc can still enter through our normal front entrance.

If you are coming through for a Covid test, please remain in your car and call us when you arrive.  The Doctor will then give you further instructions.

REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

Repeat Prescriptions can be faxed directly to your preferred pharmacy.  Please do not come in to the clinic to collect these.  Usual script fees apply which can be paid via online banking or over the phone via credit card.

The Novel Corona Virus (2019-nCoV) has symptoms similar to a range of illnesses such as influenza and may include; fever, cough, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath – but these symptoms do not necessarily mean someone has the virus.  More information on Covid-19 can be found on the Ministry of Health page [https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus] and on the Government’s Covid-19 website [https://covid19.govt.nz/].

If you do have ANY cold or flu-like symptoms, or have had recent contact with someone who is a confirmed or suspected case, please DO NOT present to the clinic.  Please phone us first on 09 837 1110.

Please keep safe during this time. Be kind and reach out to your whanau, friends and neighbours to see how they are doing.

Your care and safety is our top priority
