UHCS Patient update 8 March 2021

Kia ora,

As we move into Level 2, we will be providing more face to face appointments however we will continue to provide a higher percentage of virtual appointments. Please do not just turn up at UHCS, please call 0800 698 427 to make an appointment first.

Due to the small waiting area at UHCS we are still screening everyone in line with the relevant guidance and everyone must wear a mask there will be restricted access to the waiting area.

Prescriptions will continue to be administered. Patients who need a repeat prescription will be assessed via a phone consultation, or if deemed appropriate issued a repeat without a consultation. Prescriptions will be sent directly to your preferred pharmacy for collection.

For further information please refer to the Ministry of Health website.
