Under Alert Level 3 the Ministry of Health has stated the following criteria for seeing a patient face-to-face:
If you are experiencing an urgent health event we are required to undertake a Telehealth appointment as an assessment tool prior to consideration of a face-to-face visit. Under Alert Level 3 the Ministry of Health has stated the following criteria for seeing an urgent care patient face-to-face: “Urgent care” for community allied health professionals is defined by the Ministry of Health as: • a condition which is life or limb threatening; OR • treatment required to maintain the basic necessities of life; OR • treatment that cannot be delayed or carried out remotely without risk of significant harm or permanent and/or significant disability; AND • Is this a treatment that cannot be delayed or carried out remotely without risk of significant harm or permanent and/or significant disability? If you feel that you fit the above criteria, please contact us via email and we will be in touch regarding a telehealth appointment prior to a face to face consultation. Additional questions that will be asked during telehealth consults will include whether you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
high temperature (at least 38°C)
shortness of breath
sneezing and runny nose
temporary loss of smell
Have you been in contact with any individual who may have been exposed to Covid 19 or has recently returned to NZ from overseas
If you have an urgent appointment booked following a telehealth consult:
The contact tracing app is posted on the front door and in the waiting room.
Please enter the office only if you have an appointment. You cannot attend with another person unless they are a minor, or have an appointment also.
Be on time, and call if you need to reschedule (24 hours notice please).
If you have a sore throat, cough, fever or have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 - please call us prior to attending your appointment.
Maintain physical distancing with other patients and staff at all times. Your chiropractor, is of course, an exception to this.
Please wash your hands or use hand sanitiser that will be provided.
Kia kaha, be kind and stay safe
