Traffic light system – level Orange from 14/4/2022
We offer both phone and face to face consultations, however
Any patients who have a cold, cough, sore throat or a fever will be examined in our rear car park after an appointment has been made. Please call us when you arrive so we can triage. DO NOT ENTER THE SURGERY.
Please wear a face mask when entering the surgery.
If you have a face mask exemption, please call us when you arrive for your appointment then wait in your car until the Dr or nurse calls you.
If you have symptoms of fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath, have had contact with any international arrival, border or quarantine staff or flown internationally or domestically within NZ or if you think you may have COVID19 or been in contact with anyone who may have the virus, or places of interest PLEASE PHONE THE SURGERY FIRST. We will make an appointment for you to be seen in the surgery carpark or at a Viral testing unit.
Please note that the carpark consultations are for the treatment of your cold/cough etc or covid swabbing only. If you have other medical matters that you would like to discuss with the Dr, please call us and book and phone consultation with your Dr at another time.
If you are coming into the surgery please use the hand sanitizer provided and wear a mask.
Children under 12 years –
Please call us from your car when you arrive, then wait in your car or outside until Dr or nurse calls them for their appointment.
This is to ensure the surgery remains a safe environment for all of our patients and staff.
We want our Medical Centre to be a safe place for everybody as we all play our part in trying to keep everyone safe and well. Please continue the good hygiene practices we have all learned.
We allocate 15 minutes for phone consults, just as we do for in person visits. This includes the doctor reading your records before calling you, and time at the end for writing your notes, organising investigations, prescriptions and referrals if required. Therefore phone consultations cost the same as an in person visit.
If you require a prescription please email your request to email@example.com stating which medication you require and which pharmacy you would like it sent to. Please allow 48 hours before collecting.
Patients who are enrolled under Dr Kris Yee can email Dr Yee at firstname.lastname@example.org for prescriptions.
We know that these are stressful times but this is the new normal that we all have to operate in. Please continue to be kind to yourselves, to each other and to our staff.
