Novel Coronavirus

U P D A T E  17.8.20 

The nation is experiencing a huge demand in Covid testing and so some patients may experience a wait of longer than 24 hours for their results.

Queenstown Medical Centre does not process the tests here - swabs are sent to an off-site lab.

Thank you for your understanding that there may be delays in your results.

Thank you also for your understanding that we are experiencing a high volume of calls.

Alert Level 2 Update - 12.8.20

 

 Please book ahead for Covid-19 swabs on 03 441 0500.

We are swabbing patients at our Isle St practice only.

  Current guidelines require us to only swab:

  ***Symptomatic people

***People who have been contact traced

***People who are working in high-risk areas which the government current defines as on the border or in managed isolation facilities

 If you would like  a swab and do not meet the above criteria a charge will apply to your Covid-19 swab

 

Please do not attend our Arrowtown or Remarkables Park surgeries if you have Covid-19 symptoms (cough, sore throat, runny nose, fever)
