Crawford provides supervised RAT testing as per Ministry of Health guidelines.  We can test household contacts of a positive case, if you have symptoms, or border workers. Please call us to book a RAT test on 09 538 0083.  If you need a RAT test for travel, a court appointment, or for another medical appointment like the dentist you can ask at a pharmacy.

NOTE:  The high volume of positive cases is too high for our team to reach every patient so we will focus on those who are most unwell.  Please check the links below on how to manage mild to moderate Covid-19 at home – but please call us if you need help 09 538 0083.

Vaccine Exemptions

Vaccine Exemptions are not issued by GPs.  Click here to be redirected to the Ministry of Health website for advice on the process.  If you meet the clinical criteria, your GP will complete a form for you, and you email this form to the Director-General of Health as part of your application for a temporary exemption.  Note that there are very few people who are eligible as there are very tight criteria.
