Make an Appointment Enrol With Us

 

We Know there is a lot of information currently regarding COVID. It is changing quickly.

PHASE 3. Currently as on 25th February 2022:
If you test positive you will either receive a txt message or phone call with what to do next – this may come directly from MOH. You should be isolating until you get a test result through already.

There is more information for what to do if you test positive on
https://covid19.govt.nz/isolation-and-care/if-you-test-positive-for-covid-19/
https://covid19.health.nz/advice/positive

Please follow the advice on these pages.
Your employer should not ask you for a GP letter to confirm you need to isolate. You would only need an off work certificate if you are too unwell to work beyond the 10 days of isolation.

You do not need a further test or a letter to state you can return to work or school once your isolation has finished.

If you are a household Close Contact
You are a household Close Contact if you live with someone who is positive for COVID-19. Whether you are fully vaccinated or not, you need to:

  • stay home and self-isolate from others from the day the person with COVID-19 tests positive or is notified as a probable case until they complete their 10 days of self-isolation
  • get a test for COVID-19 on day 3, and on day 10 of the isolation period
  • if symptoms develop at any stage, assume you have COVID-19, and self-isolate for 10 days as a probable case from when your symptoms appear.

To organise a test currently as a household contact you can call 0800 4888 123 directly and you will be booked in to be tested at one of the Hutt Valley Community Testing Centre's.
PLEASE NOTE: Hutt Valley Community Testing Centre’s call centre is open Mon-Sun: 9am-4pm

We do not currently have RAT testing available at the practice and will update this if that changes.


We are currently offering COVID swabbing for our enrolled patients requiring a Doctors appointment only – this may change from time to time due to COVID response. If you do not require an appointment at this time our nursing team can refer you on to the community team.

COVID-19 Vaccination
The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is free, safe and effective. Everyone in New Zealand aged 16 or older can get vaccinated before the end of 2021, regardless of residency or citizenship status.

Ma tini, ma mano, ka rapa te whai. By joining together we will succeed

How the vaccine works

The vaccine works by teaching your immune system to recognize and fight off the virus. It doesn’t have the virus in it, or anything that can affect your DNA. The vaccine can’t give you the disease.

The vaccine is safe

Medsafe are the Government organization that looks at all medicine before it used in New Zealand. They make sure medicine is safe to use by looking at all of the research and information from around the world. Medsafe have assessed the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and they have said that it is safe to use.

Other vaccines and COVID-19

Please call to speak with the nurses if you are due for other vaccinations as these may be offered at the same time as your COVID vaccination.
