Accessing Healthcare and Appointments

Our hospitals are continuing to operate under Traffic Light Setting Red with a revised Visitor Policy in place. You should access health care services as usual, and you can travel to access health care, if you need to. 

Anyone who has a hospital appointment in Northland should attend their appointment if they are well. Some appointments may be held virtually (using Zoom or phone) – you will be advised if this is the case for you.

Note:  We are currently screening all visitors at the hospital entrance, which may add a few extra minutes at the beginning of your visit. All visitors must wear a face mask.

Pregnancy and Post Natal Care

If you are pregnant or caring for a newborn baby, it is understandable that you may be experiencing heightened levels of anxiety and distress while New Zealand is working to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Please note that our maternity facilities will remain open to provide services during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are due to give birth, please check with your midwife or lead Maternity Carer (LMC) about the plans they have in place for you.

Your postnatal in-person visits may be affected. Your midwife will do as much as possible over the phone or via video calling. Physical assessments of you and your baby will still occur but will be done as quickly as possible.

If you require support with breastfeeding your midwife will be able to provide this. For further information please visit Ministry of Health.
