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.
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:
***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)
