LBC Support Services COVID-19 update

21 January 2022 -

Update to our patient services:

While the country is in Orange, we will continue to apply extra precaution and maintain many of our services online: via phone, email and Zoom.  We will now be conducting face-to-face contact with patients and running Support groups from February.  These groups will follow strict safety practices, including requiring vaccine passes to attend, and will only be held in venues where vaccines are mandated.  As we want to continue to meet the needs of those who do not choose to come to in-person groups, we will continue offering virtual support groups periodically.  All services will be subject to change depending on the COVID situation in each area. We will be operating with DHB guidance, so please get in touch with your local Support Services Coordinator if you would like further information on our activities during the Orange level in your area. Our team of Support Service Coordinators is there to provide support as needed, and as an essential service, voucher support will continue to run as normal.

We hope to update you again soon.  If you have any questions, please contact your local Support Services Coordinator on 0800 15 10 15.
