COVID-19 Update Important update: COVID-19
We will be resuming some in-person visits from 27 May and starting to re-open our clinics for some Well Child appointments.

Our teams have been hard at work continuing to progress our plans for how we can safely re-open our clinics and resume some of our services to whānau and tamariki, in our ‘new normal’ under Alert Level 2.

We are in the process now of setting up our nearly 600 locations nationwide for re-opening, making sure we are meeting COVID-19 health and safety guidelines. Clinics will be re-opening as they are ready, and we will be updating our website daily as clinics reopen.

Starting this week, we will be contacting clients to let them know how Plunket is resuming some in-person Well Child services. We will be prioritising services for whānau Māori and Pacific families and focusing first on those who need us the most – all whānau with a new-born tamariki in their first three months, and whānau we haven’t been able to reach during Alert Levels 3 & 4.

Virtual visits will continue to be offered as a channel for Well Child services to provide the flexibility of using virtual tools such as Zoom and phone calls to stay in touch.

For our non-Well Child services, such as playgroups, coffee groups, parenting education etc, they will continue to be delivered virtually for the time being. Contracted non-Well Child services will be managed according to our contractual requirements and teams will work through those directly with the contract funders.

Whether you need support in-person, virtually, or a combination of both – we’re here for you. If you need to talk to someone during this time, please get in touch with your Plunket Nurse or give PlunketLine a call on 0800 933 922.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Manaaki tetahi ki tetahi, he waka eke noa – look after one another, we’re all in this together.
