COVID-19 Protection Framework

All of our services (clinics, workplace and community) are open and are able to see you face-to-face under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, also known as the traffic light system.

If you are feeling unwell or if you prefer a virtual appointment to support your recovery, we can see you via Telehealth remote support.

What to expect from us

We are taking some extra precautions to keep our clinics and services operating safely:

  • All our staff will be wearing masks and we encourage you to as well
  • You may be asked a few more questions than normal when making your appointment – this is to ensure we can screen appropriately to keep everyone safe 
  • Our clinic waiting rooms will be more spacious than usual to allow for physical distancing
  • You may be offered the option of a face-to-face consultation or a virtual consultation
  • How we manage our visitors (and clients’ support people) may change depending on which level of the protection framework the region is in. Whānau, visitors and support people are welcome, but they may need to provide evidence of their vaccination status
