I have COVID19 what do I do now?

May, 2022

The COVID outbreak in Wellington continues to grumble on. We are seeing people coming through on a daily basis with most folk managing with mild to moderate symptoms. We are contacting everyone of our patients that returns a COVID positive test, and remain available to support you during your illness.

 

When you test positive for COVID19 please do upload your result. We will then receive notification of this result from the Ministry of Health, and will contact you to see how you are getting on. ​Please do contact us if you have any questions or concerns. You can contact us during the week either by phone (04 473 7248), email reception@wadestownmedical.co.nz , or via your Manage My Health account. If you have recently tested positive for COVID19 and you need to contact us over the weekends please email reception@wadestownmedical.co.nz. One of our doctors will be in touch with you in due course. If it is a matter of urgency, please call Healthline, as we will be checking the emails only from time to time during the weekend. Only enquiries from those isolating with COVID19 will be addressed on Saturdays and Sundays, all other enquires will be addressed when the practice is open again on the Monday.

 

Wadestown Medical Practice continues to offer regular medical services at this time so feel free to contact us if you need to make an appointment. We are offering phone and video consultations if you do not feel comfortable attending in person. If you have respiratory symptoms, please let us know when you book your appointment, so that we can schedule your appointment at the end of our sessions i.e. late morning or late afternoon.

RAPID ANTIGENT TESTING AND PCR TESTS FOR COVID19

We have Rapid Antigen Test kits available for patients with symptoms consistent with COVID19 infection. We are not a distribution centre for tests ordered via the online system. Please call us if you have symptoms and need to pick up at kit.

We also provide PCR testing but this is only in exceptional cases and at the discretion of the nurses who are triaging your calls.

 

 

 

 

FLU VACCINES

We have been vaccinating patients against influenza since April. We have vaccination clinics available on Tuesdays and Fridays for those of you who have not received your flu vaccine as yet. You can book a slot through Manage My Health or by phoning or email (preferred) reception@wadestownmedical.co.nz. We encourage you to get a flu vaccine. Having both influenza and COVID infection at the same time may lead to a more severe illness.

Through talking about how we feel, together we can find a better way.
