Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) for the school holidays. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

All affected clinics now open

Friday, November 18, 2016

National News

All Family Planning clinics in the Canterbury, Marlborough and Wellington regions have now reopened following the earthquakes and flooding earlier this week.

The 7.8 earthquake on Sunday night caused clinic closures in Christchurch, Ashburton, Blenheim, Wellington, Lower Hutt and Porirua.

Many of these clinics reopened on Tuesday, however heavy rain in the Wellington region delayed reopening our Lower Hutt and Porirua clinics until Wednesday.

Final building checks for our Blenheim and Margaret Sparrow Clinic in central Wellington have now been completed, and we are pleased to now have all clinics open and operating with normal hours.

Despite all the shaking, all of our clinics have come out remarkably well, with just a bit of a tidy-up needed before getting back up and running!

Thank you for your patience during this time as we had to reschedule many of your appointments, or move your appointment to phone consultations.

This is a good reminder that many appointments with a nurse can be carried out over the phone, and any prescriptions you may need can be sent to your chosen pharmacy – ask us if this in an option when you book your appointment.

Stay safe over the next few days as the aftershocks settle down.

Family Planning has clinics located throughout New Zealand. Use the clinic finder to find your nearest clinic.
