COVID-19 – Updated March 23

In light of the announcement from our Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern today, we will be stopping all elective operating and face to face clinic appointments until the COVID-19 threat level is lowered.  These are unprecedented times and there is a lot still that is unknown.  We are truly sorry for all those who have had surgeries disrupted and will shortly be contacting you individually to explain our plans moving forward.  We anticipate continuing with telehealth consultations using secure videoconferencing for follow-up and some new patient consultations and will shortly contact you to let you know what this involves.  In the meantime, please contact us for any urgent concerns and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.  Again the safety of our patients and staff are our top priority.  Stay safe, keep active and remember that this time will pass and normal life will return.

Kia kaha,

Mark Smith
