Our Covid Precautions

Patient safety and comfort is never compromised at the NHC. During the COVID-19 pandemic we’re working closely with Government to continue to offer our services without putting the community at risk.

Centre Safety Precautions

  • Social distancing is strictly applied within our reception and clinical areas, in line with the latest Government advice.
  • Masks and hand sanitiser are readily available for patients when they arrive.
  • Telehealth appointments are available for those who would prefer not to attend the clinic in person.

Consider Telehealth

Telehealth is a great way to get medical advice from the comfort of your own home. Due to the pandemic, there are certain patients who we strongly advise not to attend the clinic in person. Please book for Telehealth if you have;

  • COVID symptoms and are yet to receive a negative test result.
  • Returned from overseas in the last 14 days.
