General practices in the district are open
General Practices will remain open as essential services. However, the way services are provided will be different.
General Practices will be providing consultations and other services using non-contact methods. These will include phone and video consults and patient portal messaging. General Practices will still be open to see people face-to-face at the discretion of their clinician.
Many practices have patient portals which will help people stay connected to their General Practice teams online. For people who have not yet registered on a patient portal, THINK Hauora is streamlining an online registration and ID verification process. More information will follow.
People can check if their General Practice offers a patient portal here. https://www.thinkhauora.nz/general-practices
