From today (11 October), the Taranaki COVID-19 Testing Team move to an e-ordering system for COVID-19 test results. This will mean changes to how patients and GPs are notified of these results.
This is a good time to ensure your answer phone and automatic messages are giving patients the correct information regarding COVID-19 testing in Taranaki. Please check patients are receiving the correct information when calling your practice.
If patients are in need of a COVID-19 test they can call 0800 678 378 for advice and to book an appointment. Please direct patients to the latest testing centre locations and times found on the Taranaki District Health Board website.
The Taranaki COVID-19 Testing Team know these are relatively big changes and appreciate your support on this. If you have any queries about any of these changes please call 0800 678 378 to talk to a member of their team.
