Covid-19 Changes

Despite COVID-19 Te Atatu Health is open and here to support you with any health concerns.

More information can be found on the Ministry of Health page and on the Government’s Covid-19 website.

To protect our patients and staff, and reduce the spread of COVID-19 there are some key changes about how we run:

Phone Consultations

We have returned to  phone consults and if a clinician deems it clinically necessary for you to be seen in person, we will arrange for this in a safe way. Please note standard fees apply for phone consults.

Prescriptions

If you are due a Repeat Prescription, you can request this as normal (phone or Indici Portal). If you are due for a GP review, please book an appointment for a phone consult. Prescriptions will be sent directly to your local Pharmacy; you will not be able to pick these up from the clinic.

COVID-19 Testing – BOOKED APPOINTMENTS ONLY

We are an approved COVID-19 Designated Testing Practice; this means we can safely test our patients as well as other members of the community. The testing is separate from the GP Clinic, so it is safe for those who are needing to come into the clinic. We can test anyone with ANY of the following symptoms.

  • Cough
  • Sore Throat
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Head Cold (e.g., Runny Nose, Sneezing, Post-Nasal Drip)
  • Loss of sense of smell
  • Fever
  • Body Aches
  • Close or casual contacts or location of Interest.

To book in for Covid tesst – Testing is FREE – You do not need to be enroled.

Enroled Patients – Please call reception on 09 900 1111

Not Enroled – Please email Your Full Name and Phone number to covidreferrals@tahealth.co.nz

As the Levels and updates change, so will are processes, therefore there may be further changes to the above.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
