Kia ora.

At alert level 4 we are making  a number of changes to keep you and our staff safe:

  • We are converting outpatient clinic appointments to telephone of video appointments where possible – you’ll be provided with all the information you need.
  • We are still seeing patients in person who require urgent appointments. If you have an in person appointment and have any COVID-19 symptoms or have been told by public health to isolate please phone the number on your appointment letter in advance.
  • Unfortunately most of our planned surgery is being rescheduled. Acute and critically urgent surgery will still go ahead as usual.
  • We are trying to contact our patients to confirm their appointment or to reschedule them. 
  • Visitor restrictions are in place at the moment – you can visit Auckland DHB website for more information.

 The situation is changing so please continue to visit the Auckland DHB website for updates.
