Positive Covid case in Karapiro and more cases in Hamilton-what this means for us


We were all advised that on 6/10/21, that there are currently 18 active cases of COVID-19 in the Waikato including cases in Hamilton and one case in Karapiro. In light of this new development, our practice will be operating using level 3 protocols. We again apologise for the inconvenience caused by this as ask for your continued patience as we endeavour to offer the best services we can in difficult times.

1) we are continuing to offer Covid testing for as many people as we can. Please phone us first if you wish to have a Covid swab. Symptoms to be concerned about are: cough, cold, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, fevers. You will be given instructions and a time to attend for your test. Please remain in your car at all times. We have been advised today by the Ministry of Health, that anyone who has visited areas of interest can now be tested, even if they do not have symptoms. There are testing stations at Karapiro and in Hamilton and we will refer you to them if we run out of capacity to test you on the day you call

2) we will text you when you get your Covid testing result. We do not know how long the lab will take to process the results but we will be checking our results regularly and you will be notified as soon as we get the results. We kindly ask you therefore not to phone us for your swab results

3) if you wish to have an appointment with a doctor you will have a phone or video consultation with a doctor in the first instance. If, after this review it is deemed medically necessary to see you in person you will be given instructions as to how to proceed

4) all repeat prescriptions will be sent to your nominated pharmacy, prescriptions will not be available to be picked up from our practice

5) ACC and WINZ certificate renewals can be organised via video or phone consultations 

6) routine childhood immunisations will continue to take place as scheduled as will Depo Provera injections, cervical smears will be re-booked where possible, and b12 injections, where possible, will be offered to patients whilst they remain in their cars

7) Urgent blood tests and X-rays and ultrasounds will continue in the community, however, River Radiology, next door to us have had to close for 10 days due to a positive COVID case entering their Hamilton branch. They have had to stand down some of their Hamilton staff and re-deploy their Cambridge staff instead.

8) our urgent medical service continues to be put on hold, please phone us for an appointment

COVID-19: Key Information

We are grateful to our patients for their understanding during these unprecedented times. For Cambridge Family Health, Alert Level 1 is the ‘new normal’ - we will continue to offer phone and video consultations as an option for our patients.

When you phone us for an appointment you will be asked whether you have a fever, cough, cold, runny nose, or shortness of breath. If you answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you will be asked to remain in your car when you arrive for your appointment and to phone us to let us know when you have arrived. You will enter and leave the building through our side door.

We urge all of you to continue to wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your face.

COVID-19 testing

We offer COVID-19 testing Monday to Friday from 12.30pm to 2pm.

Please phone the practice to make an appointment for the test, and when you arrive remain in your car for testing unless instructed otherwise. 

We offer this service free of charge to all patients who are enrolled with any GP practice in New Zealand. If you are visiting from overseas and require a test in order to travel back to your country of residence, you will be required to pay for this test. For this, we recommend attending the testing station at Claudelands Event Centre in Hamilton.
