Like many other general practices, we are planning how to keep our community members safe.
As you are aware, Covid 19 the Delta variant is circulating around NZ. We have started preparing for when this comes to Porirua Wellington.
Once covid19 hits wellington we plan to change the way we provide health care, we will remain open, same hours Monday to Friday.
Most consultations with your Doctor, Nurse or other health provider will be offered by doxy-me video call or a telephone call. Many of you are already familiar with this process.
If our team book an appointment for you to come into the clinic, you maybe be seen in another smaller building next door. Please know that if you have cold or flu type symptoms you may be turned away to rebook another time, this is to protect other patients and staff; we will get back to you.
We have many social support agencies that we work closely with. Please ask us if you have any questions or need support. Please also see our website for more information on covid 19 support.
Our team at PUCHS will do their best to keep our community safe, you can help by having your 2-covid-19 vaccinations, wear a mask, sanitise or wash your hands often and use the covid 19 scanner regularly.
It is important we have all your up to date contact details, eg your mobile or landline number or your family contact number.
