WELCOME TO RICCARTON MEDICAL, WHERE YOUR HEALTH IS OUR FOCUS.
We ask that any patients with flu type symptoms not make an appointment online but ring reception and a nurse will talk to you before an appointment is made. We are working within guidelines to minimize the risk of spreading this highly contagious illness. Your co operation is much appreciated. There are daily updates available on the Ministry of Health website (www.health.govt.nz) We recommend that you get all your information from this source and NOT from social media.
Here are some tips to avoid spreading virus: – Wash your hands often with soap and water or use alcohol-based sanitiser – Avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth unnecessarily (they are gateways for colds and viruses to enter the body)
