Kia ora koutou,
Here are a couple of updates for the week ahead:
Forthcoming changes to the distribution of RATs
From 1 July 2023, members of the public will no longer be able to pre-order Rat testing kits via RAT Requestor. The 0800 222 478 phoneline will continue to operate, and the public can find more information on the Healthpoint website and on Te Whatu Ora’s Unite Against COVID-19 Website.

Request for Urgent Care Clinic Workforce Support from General Practice
Urgent Care Clinics are experiencing critical workforce pressure and are seeking providers who could be available for locum work. Urgent Care Clinics are ideally looking for 24 clinical hours over a 3-month period, ideally spread across 3 to 6 shifts. Urgent Care Clinics would provide paid onboarding for providers to ensure they feel comfortable with the clinic and systems. The hourly/sessional rate would be at that of current market rates of primary care locums in Metro Auckland.
