Ostend Medical Centre is open during all Covid Alert Levels. We encourage telephone or video consultations during Alert Levels 3 & 4 but rest assured we also provide a safe environment for in-person consultations at the practice.
Our main message is that your ongoing health is important – do not put off seeking help for your health care.
We are encouraging you to seek a Covid test if you have any of the following symptoms (sore throat, runny nose, cough, loss of smell, fever, shortness of breath) to get a Covid swab. Our team is fully set up to do this for you at Ostend Medical Centre.
All Covid swabs are free for anyone with symptoms or high risk contact. Please phone first and a nurse will call you back and guide you through the next steps.
If you need to make an appointment (in-person or video or telephone), you can do so online at www.connectmed.co.nz if you are enrolled with us, or you can call us on 09 372 5005.
Remember we remain open for normal hours during all COVID levels. We ALWAYS provide Emergency, Accident and Urgent Care during these hours.
