Dear Manuka Street Hospital Patients and Visitors

Manuka Street Hospital is fully operational during the Covid-19 Protection Framework (traffic light system); we are operationally at ORANGE.

The hospital is complying with workplace guidance from the Ministry of Health to ensure we reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.

To ensure physical distancing we have placed signage around our hospital to remind staff, patients and visitors to maintain 1m distance from persons outside normal home or workplace bubbles, and we are staggering patient admission times. Please ensure you arrive at the designated time. Hand sanitiser is available throughout the hospital; we request that visitors and patients use hand sanitiser upon entering the hospital. There is an enhanced cleaning protocol in place for the facility.

Face masks are mandatory during your visit to Manuka Street Hospital.

We require all visitors and patients to sign in using the QR Code or to manually sign in with Reception.

Please note that visitor restrictions are in place. Patients may have only one designated visitor, who must be screened (via a series of questions) and must be fully vaccinated, prior to entering Manuka Street Hospital.

We may ask for the vaccination status of our patients; vaccination is not mandatory for patients but it does assist us with risk mitigation. We may also perform a Rapid Antigen test on unvaccinated, asymptomatic patients so that we can understand the risk profile of our patients.

All patients will have their temperature taken on arrival at the hospital.

We look forward to providing high quality surgical care to our patients, and ensuring that we all stay safe from Covid-19.
