Some Plunket services reopen by appointment
The following Plunket sites are now open for Well child services. Your local Plunket staff will communicate with you about your next visit and any other the services that are available from your local site.
Plunket launches prioritised virtual service - April 2020
Plunket has launched a prioritised virtual service to ensure it can continue to support whānau following the Government’s move to raise the COVID-19 Alert level to Level 4 which has meant the suspension of all Plunket’s face-to-face services.
The Student Volunteer Army partners with Plunket to support sole parents during COVID-19 - April 2020
Both Plunket and the Student Volunteer Army are thrilled to announce they’ve teamed up to help spread the word to parents who might be struggling to get their groceries - and with whānau and neighbours gradually returning to work as we move into Level 3, this need won’t be going away anytime soon.
Our services under Level 3 restrictions - April 2020
The change from Alert level 4 to Alert level 3 sees little change to how Whānau Āwhina Plunket services will be provided to support to tamariki and whānau. Well Child Tamariki Ora services will continue to be delivered virtually, to minimise transmission and support the wider health system COVID-19 effort, until restrictions ease and Plunket is able to resume ‘in person visits’.
Update to clinics, playgroups and parenting groups - March 2020
Due to the latest developments, we’ve decided to temporarily close all of our clinics, play groups, and parenting groups from Monday 23 March 2020. Taking this step will help to reduce the risk of infection and protect families.
Plunket to suspend all face to face services - March 2020
Following the Government’s announcement that New Zealand has raised its COVID-19 Alert level to Level 3, and within 48 hours will raise to Level 4, effectively immediately Plunket will suspend all its face to face services to ensure New Zealand whānau and tamariki remain safe.
