Peninsula Medical Centre - Te Atatu Peninsula

COVID-19

COVID-19 UPDATE 31/08/2020 - Move to Level 2

 

Peninsula Medical Centre is OPEN during COVID-19 Lockdown

 

Peninsula Medical Centre is your primary care clinic. We are an essential service, therefore we remain open. We are following guidance from Ministry of Health and Royal NZ College of General Practitioners.  To protect our vulnerable patients and staff, and reduce the spread of COVID-19 there are some some key changes about how we operate:

 

  • Majority of consultations are still PHONE CONSULTATIONS. 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 phone consultations will incur a standard appointment fee.
     
  • We have Strict Infection Control Measures in place.
    • If you have any symptoms of acute respiratory infection, you can be seen in our Respiratory Clinic (red zone) or have a Phone Consultation. You can't come into the normal GP clinic (green zone) if you have any of the following symtpoms: cough, sore throat, runny nose/sneezing/head cold, shortness of breath, loss of sense of smell or fever

 

  • COVID-19 Testing Site is open 9am-4pm, Monday-Friday. Anyone with symptoms should be tested as per Ministry of Health (Symptoms = cough, sore throat, runny nose/sneezing/head cold, shortness of breath, loss of sense of smell or fever) or are needing testing for surveillance purposes.

 

  • If you are due a Repeat Prescription, you can request this as normal (phone or Health365 Portal). If you are due for a GP review, please book an appointment. 

    • Prescriptions will be sent directly to your local Pharmacy, you will not be able to pick these up from the clinic. Please identify your local Pharmacy before speaking to a Doctor or Nurse.
       
  • No Saturday clinics until further notice. 

 

We are an approved COVID-19 Designated Testing Practice, this means we can safely test and assess our patients as well as other members of the community. The testing is completely 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

As the situation evolves, we are adapting with it, so there may be further changes to the above. Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate this together!

Stay Safe. Be Kind. Kia Kaha!
