There is currently COVID-19 in our community which means some changes to our hospitals and clinics. Find out more. As always, we're here if you need us.
Thank you for your hard mahi helping our communities stay safe and well! We are grateful for all that you do.
We've put together some guidance to help you look after your own health and wellbeing too.
We're sorry to hear you are not feeling well. It's important you stay home when you are sick or have been asked to isolate.
Take a RAT test if:
Rapid antigen tests (RATs) are very good at identifying if you are infectious. They are also faster, and much more pleasant, than PCRs. We're asking all of our kaimahi to self-manage RAT testing and take a test if the above applies.
Enter your results on My Covid Record.
If you got a supervised RAT at a Community Testing Centre or from another health provider, the result will be automatically entered for you on your My Covid Record.
* You are a household contact if you normally share a residence with a person who has tested positive. This includes anyone who shares a house or flat on a permanent or part-time basis (for example, shared custody) with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, and You spent at least one night or day (more than 8 hours) in that residence while the person with COVID-19 was infectious.
Protect yourself, your whānau, and our vulnerable patients, by getting your seasonal flu vaccination.
You can do this at Auckland City Hospital Monday – Friday between 9am-3pm at the Clinical Skills Centre, Level 4, Support Building, or any local GP or pharmacy.
We know things are tough right now, so we’re putting some extra support in place for you if you want to have a chat with someone about how you’re feeling.
