What Alert Level 2 Means For Your Health Care
If you require any medical assistance, please phone our practice – 094451215
We remain open during all Alert Levels — health and medical facilities (such as medical practices and pharmacies) are an essential service. However, our practice is now reimplementing some safety measures as part of our response to Alert Level 2.
If you require any medical assistance, please phone our practice. All patients will be screened during their initial phone call to determine their ‘next steps’.
Dial 111 if you need urgent help.
There are also several things you can do right now:
+ Continue or get back to stringent hand hygiene, sneeze and cough into your elbow.
+ If you or a family member are unwell, please stay at home and contact Healthline or your GP about getting a test.
+ Practice physical distancing of two meters wherever possible.
+ Consider wearing a mask in public spaces or places where it is hard to physically distance.
