Dear Manuka Street Hospital Patients

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 everyone to maintain 2m 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 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 patients to sign in using the QR Code or to manually sign in with Reception.

Please note that visitor restrictions are in place. There is a “No Visitor” policy in place for Day Stay patients. Inpatients may have one designated visitor, who is allowed in the patient’s room. Visitors do not need to undergo Rapid Antigen testing. However, if a patient has a caregiver, both patient and caregiver must be Rapid Antigen tested prior to admission. Patients who test positive via a Rapid Antigen Test, immediately prior to admission, are likely to be deferred.

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

We may ask for the vaccination status of our patients; however, vaccination is not mandatory for patients but it does assist us with risk mitigation.

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

Please note that all of our staff and specialists are fully vaccinated.
