If you've been putting off seeking medical care because of the change in alert levels around the country, don't! Your health is essential and it's really important not to delay.

We have systems in place to ensure safety for all of our patients and staff.

This includes asking all visitors to the clinic to wear a face cover. Don’t have one? No worries, our staff will provide you with one.

Additionally, we would greatly appreciate limiting the number of support people you bring into the clinic to one (where possible). This helps us to ensure social distancing is maintained which helps to keep us all safe.

A big thank you to our friends at TRG Imaging and Foot Mechanics Podiatry for their support during Northcross's time as a CBAC.
With only 24 hours notice they had to pack up, move out and find alternative premises to see their patients.
Additionally unlike many other businesses that could reopen once the levels dropped, they had to wait until our CBAC closed.

They are now both back open and we couldn't be more pleased to see their familiar faces once again.

We are so grateful for their support and cooperation!

We are extremely disappointed to find that after serving our community for four months, that on our last day as a COVID-19 testing centre someone decided to help themselves to the metal poles of our shelter.

These shelters have given our hardworking staff and our patients protection from the elements and were to be repurposed as part of our screening process when we open for urgent care matters on Monday.

We do thank all of the community for their support while we've operated over the last four months however if you have any information or saw anything please email us at admin@shorecare.co.nz .

As we head into our final days as a CBAC we want to say a huge thank you to our locals who have supported us throughout these uncertain times.
We have really appreciated everyone's patience and kind words.
We finish our time as a CBAC on the 31st of July with operation Northcross comeback beginning in the early hours of the 1st of August.

Our process of having booked appointments and swabbing in car means that we haven't actually had anyone with COVID-19 inside our clinic but for peace of mind we thought a deep clean was in order.

At 8am on Monday the 3rd of August we open our doors once again for all urgent care matters to the public.

This is where we really need your support!

After just over four months of being closed we need to get the word out that we are back in action, ready to care for you and your family.

So make sure to share this news with your friends and family and let's get Northcross up and running again!

The 21st of March seems like it was only yesterday but boy oh boy do we feel about 10 years older.

When we had word that we had been chosen to transform into a community based assessment centre (CBAC) it was all go to get Northcross ready within 48 hours to start the testing process.

After a few teething problems and being over run with calls at times, our appointment based system really proved to be a winner allowing us to test over 9000 North Shore and Rodney locals.

A big thank you to our community for your continued support throughout our time as a CBAC.

Our extremely hard working team have appreciated every kind word over the last three months and are looking forward to getting back to our normal.

Wow, what a crazy couple of weeks our team have had.

If you haven't heard, Northcross has been transformed into a COVID-19 testing centre and is currently closed for all urgent care matters.
Smales Farm remains open 24/7 should you need us.

Our amazing staff worked extremely long hours to get the CBAC (community based assessment centre) up and running and we are proud to say that it is now working like a well oiled machine.

Please note that we are by appointment only.
You must phone ahead on (021) 256 6321 so that our nurses can triage you and book you a time to come and see us.
This is for your safety and ours and also means that you won't have to sit in a queue of people in cars for hours.
If you arrive without an appointment you will be turned away by security.
I know it may be frustrating if you can't get through to us on the phones straight away but please keep trying.
We have been inundated with calls and we can only answer so many at one time.
When you arrive for your appointment DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CAR. Our staff will come to you in full PPE gear to perform the test.

As we head into our third week of being a CBAC (community based assessment centre) we thought we'd share a few figures on our patient numbers from our clinic at Northcross.

Keep safe everyone and thanks for your patience!
