Oxford Women’s Health is now able to provide most services, including all surgeries. We’re able to see patients face-to-face but many consultations will still be over the phone and via Skype/Zoom during the Alert Level 2 response to COVID-19.
The following advice is for our patients and any doctors wishing to refer patients to us during Alert Level 2:
- Consultations with Oxford Women’s Health specialists and Allied Health providers are continuing but many are being done via telephone or Skype/Zoom to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- Face-to-face consultations are available for most new patients or patients with urgent issues, and those requiring surgery.
- We are also able to provide in rooms procedures at our clinic, such as colposcopies and smear tests.
- If you have an appointment, or are scheduled for surgery, you will be asked some COVID-19 screening questions prior to your appointment. These will be asked again on your arrival.
- Unfortunately, you will not be able to bring a support person to most appointments, and we ask that no children accompany you. Any support people will also be screened prior to visiting our clinic.
- As per Ministry of Health guidelines, we are maintaining a contact tracing register of all people who come into our clinic.
- We will also ask you to use hand sanitizer on arrival and follow our sneezing/cough etiquette.
Who to contact during the COVID-19 response:
- If you are experiencing an emergency, please phone 111.
- If you are pregnant and have a concern, please contact your obstetrician or midwife.
- If you have a women’s health issue and you want to talk to an Oxford Women’s Health specialist, you can call us directly during business hours. You will not need a referral to do this.
Thank you for your understanding during this time.
Please do not come to the clinic if you are unwell with any cold or flu-like symptoms.
