Health and medical facilities are recognised as essential services and will remain open during Alert Level 4. We want to remind everyone with on-going health issues to continue to seek out medical advice or assistance if necessary, by phoning their regular doctor or the hospital. This includes getting prescriptions for regular medications. Pharmacies will also continue to remain open during Alert Level 4. Please also phone them first to find out what arrangements are available for you to obtain your medication.

If you don’t have a family doctor, if you’re feeling unwell but you’re not sure if you need to see a doctor; or for advice about what’s happening for you and next steps, please contact Healthline at 0800 358 5453. The call is free and someone is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
