Patients requiring urgent xrays will in most cases still be x-rayed, however access to the service is only by referral from your doctor or the after hours emergency doctor.

Medical staff are aware of these new arrangements and we wish to reassure the community that we will continue to provide the best service possible under the current circumstances. The management of the COVID-19 pandemic is coordinated nationally and the Trust will notify the community as soon as the Whitianga site is able to reopen.
