All of the staff at Hutt City Health Centres want to say thank you for your ongoing patience and cooperation during this unusual time.

We have remained open throughout this time and we want to assure everyone that they will be cared for safely.  Our doors will remain locked with a buzzer to access.  Please only present to the clinic if you have a booked appointment and have been triaged by clinical staff.

Consultations with your doctor may be held over the phone or on doxy.me (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. 

If you have a fever, cough, sore throat or suspect you may have Covid-19 please call and we will arrange your consultation in your car.  Our doctor will come out to you.

All prescriptions will be sent directly to your pharmacy so make sure you let us know who your pharmacy is when ordering - we will be continuing with payment by debit or credit card.  If you do not have either card we can send you an invoice which needs to be paid within seven days into our bank account.

This is a great time to join Health 365 (our portal) so you can book appointments, order scripts and see your results online.  

We all still need to remember social distancing and good hygiene practices.
