Covid-19 testing

Designated GP Practice

We offer a Drive in COVID-19 testing centre. You do not need to be an enrolled patient to get a test. Testing for Covid 19 is free of charge. Please call the practice for more information or contact the 0800Virus19 number for updated Covid 19 Information (0800 847 8719) this 0800 number is also available in the weekends and on public holidays. 

If you or any of your whanau have any symptoms, stay at home, and contact Te Kaika on 4719960 Option 1 or 0800Virus19 for advice about getting a test. 

When you arrive at the practice for your Covid 19 test please stay in your car, contact reception on 03 4719960 and wait in your car for someone to come and see you.

Covid Testing is available from 9am - 4pm, Monday to Friday. Closed Weekends and Public Holidays. 

Use the COVID tracer app to scan QR codes every time you enter a business. 

Turn on the bluetooth on the tracer app, those who have scanned the QR codes and enabled Bluetooth will find out more quickly whether they have potentially been exposed to COVID.

Testing for Travel

For travellers leaving New Zealand

Some countries require travellers to confirm a negative COVID-19 test before they leave New Zealand. You can check the requirements of the country you are travelling to, by contacting their local High Commission, Embassy or Consulate in New Zealand. 

If you need a COVID-19 test prior to departure, you can organise it through Te Kaika Health at a upfront cost of $200.00.

Contact your doctor to book a test once your travel plans are confirmed. The test needs to be taken as close as possible to when you will be travelling – check with your High Commission, Embassy or Consulate for the timing that applies to your country. 

It usually takes several days for test results to be available, but it could be longer, so people need to ensure they don’t leave it too late, especially around the weekend.

If your travel plans change to a later day than expected, a re-test and negative result may be required.

Entry requirements may differ between countries but you will probably need a hard-copy of your negative COVID-19 test result to present to check-in before boarding the plane. Your general practice or GP will be able to give this to you. You will also probably need to show the result to Customs/Immigration on arrival at your destination. 

If the test is positive, you will be notified and won’t be able to travel.
