A global pandemic hits our shores : important info and updates from NHC

The NHC current response

We remain open for business as usual, determined to deliver services and support to the practices and communities we serve. At NHC we have taken steps to ensure the safety of our PHO employees and steps to minimise risks.  We must all follow the basic rules (hand washing, sneeze and cough into your elbow, observe social distancing).

As this is an unfolding and continuously changing scenario, therefore we will be reassessing daily our policies around safely providing our services to you, with the wellbeing of our staff and communities taking priority.

Together we can slow the spread

Partnership with Māori in responding to this pandemic is essential to achieving equitable outcomes. The evidence tells us that Māori are likely to experience significantly worse effects from Covid-19. We are committed to ensuring these effects are reduced or eliminated.

Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou. A huge thank you to all who attended the NHC's 8th Annual Provider Awards on Friday 13 November, both in person and virtually.

Despite the last minute changes brought about by COVID-19, the evening was a fantastic celebration of the incredible mahi you all do to contribute to the vision of mana whānau, whānau ora.

Congratulations to all award winners!

After this week's latest Covid-19 community cases, the team at NHC had to jump into action to deliver an Annual Provider Awards event that was primarily virtual. While this meant we weren't able to host as many manuhiri as planned, the extra kai didn't go to waste.

A big "ngā mihi" goes out to Owen Pomana and the whānau at Humanity NZ who made sure it went to anyone who needed it. Their amazing kaupapa sees them feeding Tāmaki Makaurau's homeless every night.

Ka mau te wehi!

Just wanting to showcase the mahi of Taumarunui Kokiri Trust who earlier this week delivered a POP-UP Wellness Clinic in the carpark of the Taumarunui Memorial Hall. NHC kaimahi, from our very own Tiakina te Tangata Service, had great pleasure in supporting our TKCT whānau on this day too. Ka rawe o koutou mahi!

Definitely another example of Māori providers/organisations standing in unity to do what is needed to protect our whānau/communities from Covid-19.....

Every time you wear a mask when you're travelling on the bus or train, at the supermarket, and out in public, you're doing your part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our rohe. You don't have to go buy masks - we know it can be difficult to buy them now - you can also make your own at home. There are many helpful mask-making tutorials on YouTube which uses what you've got in your whare to make a mask, so you and your whaanau can be prepared when needing to pick-up the essentials.

Remember - you've got this! Wash your hands, 2 metre physical distance and please go and get tested if you’ve got any of the symptoms – check out our Facebook banner at the top for more info. #stopthespread

Also remember that it's important to seek immediate help in an emergency - don't delay. If you are injured or experiencing severe symptoms it's critical that you still call 111 or go to hospital.

So, if you should need assistance with connecting to one of our network clinics then call us on 0800 100 NHC (0800 100 642) between 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday.

After more than 100 days with no community cases of COVID-19, New Zealand now has cases of COVID-19, with no links to managed isolation or overseas travel.

As a result, the Prime Minister has tonight announced that Tamaki Makaurau (The Auckland SuperCity area, from Wellsford to Pukekohe) is heading into Level 3 from tomorrow mid-day, for an initial 3 days(until midnight on Friday), whilst the rest of the Country will move to Level 2.

We know what to do, we've done this before. We're prepared.

Kia māia, kia mataara Aotearoa.

In response to the COVID-19 situation, Ngā Kaitiaki o Te Puna Rongoā o Aotearoa (the Māori Pharmacists Association) have launched a free phone line to answer questions that kaumātua or whānau may have about their medicines.

When callers ring the dedicated phone line, they are asked to leave their contact details, and one of a team of 10 Māori pharmacists will respond and go through their questions.

🚨Whānau are encouraged to continue to call 111 in an emergency, or their GP, or Healthline if they are wanting prompt medical advice.🚨

These pātai (questions) may be things such as:
▶️ How do I use my medicine?
▶️ What is my medicine for?
▶️ What are the common side effects and how can these be managed?
▶️ Should I get the flu vaccine?
▶️ Will my normal medicines be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic?We have a free phone line to support kaumātua and whānau with any questions they may have about their medicines.
