Testing

If you are registered with Waikanae Health, have flu type symptoms and/or wish to be tested for COVID-19 call us 04 2936005 and select option 4 to speak with one of our nurses, who will book you in at our swabbing clinic. Priority will be given to high risk (ie close contacts) & symptomatic patients should demand be high. If you are NOT registered with us please call Healthline on 0800 358 5453, they will help direct you to the swabbing clinic closest to you that have capacity to test.

Currently testing is FREE unless you require pre-travel clearance. Cost for pre-travel clearance is $250 for which we require prepayment.

How we are operating at Level 1:

 

Although there is no community spread of Covid-19, as a health centre we have been encouraged to:

 

  • Continue offering, where possible both telephone and video consultations – while many patients want to see their doctor ‘in the flesh’, if your symptoms can be managed without you coming into the clinic and being exposed, not just potentially to Covid-19 but other illnesses, this should remain the option for you.

 

  • Continue with physical distancing within the clinic – this means that we need to stagger appointment times for face-to-face (in-clinic) appointments to minimise the number of people in the clinic at any time;

 

  • Separate patients that have flu-like (respiratory) symptoms & illnesses from those that do not. We will continue to ask you questions when making in-clinic appointments – answering ‘yes’ does not mean you cannot come in. It just means we need to manage the best pathway and timing for you, so that we can minimise any risk factors. We ask that you are honest when answering our questions – we have already had situations where we have had to decontaminate consultation rooms, closing them down until Covid-19 results has come back.
