With the recent new COVID-19 community cases in Auckland, and the announcement from the PM that Auckland is in alert level 3 and the rest of the country in alert level 2 from 6 am on 28 February, we would like to let you know what this means for our patient support services.
Our focus is on the safety and wellbeing of our patients and families, and for this reason, we will be observing extra precautions with no face to face contact for the time being. Any groups planned over the next week will be cancelled, with zoom meetings offered as an alternative where possible. All our patient contact will be via phone, email and Zoom. Our team of Support Services Coordinators will continue to be there to provide support as you need it, and voucher support will continue to run as normal. We hope to update you again in the very near future.
If you have any questions, please contact your local Support Services Coordinator on 0800 15 10 15.
Up-to-date information about cancer and COVID-19 is available on the Ministry of Health’s website. Health and disability services at Alert Level 3 | Ministry of Health NZ
