COVID-19 in our community mean some changes to our hospitals and clinics.

Planned Appointments

If you have an appointment with us, please come as normal unless we have contacted you to tell you it is cancelled. If you have any cold or flu like symptoms, please call us on 09 375 4300 for advice. Please only bring one support person with you to your appointment.

Where possible, many of our outpatient appointments are being carried out by phone or video. Find out more.

Visitors

Please do not visit if you have any cold or flu like symptoms.

Currently inpatients at Auckland DHB facilities with no suspicion of COVID-19 positive, will be able to have one visit per day. Visits will usually be restricted to one visitor at a time. The visitor must be one of two people who have been identified as a patient’s nominated visitors.

There will be some exemptions on compassionate grounds - there are special arrangements for birthing women. All visitors will be screened on arrival.

Visitors will be expected to wear face covering on our sites. If you don’t have have a face covering, we will provide you with one when you arrive.

If you are a nominated visitor, your visitor number will be sent to you when the patient provides your details to the Ward Clerk on admission.

All other visitors can use the Visitor portal to load their details and speed up the screening process at the door.
