Important: To keep everyone safe during Alert Level 2, visiting people in hospitals is restricted. Whaanau who visit should arrange visits in advance with the ward Charge Nurse. More details here.
Whaanau who want to visit a patient need to be from the patient’s own “bubble”, and will need to request permission in advance by speaking to the Charge Nurse Manager/ Charge Midwife Manager.
Contact details for all our sites are listed on the website. The decision will be made on a case-by-case basis, by a lead clinician in conjunction with infection prevention and control experts.
We encourage whaanau and friends to first consider “virtual” visiting options – by phone, text or video/ FaceTime – to stay connected and give support to patients who are in hospital.
If you are unwell, you must stay at home.
