a bit of banter: Day 14 of Social Distancing

Owner from British Isles Inn Eatery & Bar - Rothesay Bay

As we end nearly week 2 of the lockdown, I've been thinking about Osama Bin Laden. He was stuck in his house with three wives for a while. I'm beginning to wonder if he called in those Navy Seals himself.

Are our Hospitals doing the right thing?

Hugh from Browns Bay

For the last couple of weeks, we are told that Hospitals have cancelled all non urgent bookings. But as we are seeing it so far, only 5 patients are in hospital with the virus.

But as we are seeing it so far, only 5 patients are in hospital with the virus. So they are sitting at 50 or 60% occupancy levels. But it means hundreds are at home in pain or other difficulty, needing some surgery or other treatment, which maybe now should start getting back into the system. Those people may only be in hospital overnight, or a few days.

Even if the worst happened, and the virus attacked patient numbers had a ten fold jump, that would mean an extra 50, spread across hospitals all over the country! Not too hard to deal with I am sure. Time for a rethink perhaps? Life is still going on!

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!

We are so happy to be welcoming an incredible new partner to Neighbourly - joining our long-term friends AMI, Resene and Ryman Healthcare.

Pet Direct are the new kids on the pet block and know the industry inside-out; they have over 350 dog years of animal experience within their team. Most importantly right now, they're still delivering all your essential items during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The Pet Direct team do things differently; firstly they ALL have pets of their own. They also personally hand-pick every product they stock; they have over 5,000 items that have been tried and tested (but mostly eaten). They ship daily, from their Auckland-based warehouse, straight to your doorstep (with free delivery over $29), and offer a best price guarantee.

Neighbours - our pets remain a constant source of love and comfort during unsettling times. So show them (and the team at Pet Direct) how special they are. To say thanks for the support (and for being a good neighbour during this tough time), they're offering you 10% off their already awesome prices. Just use the code NEIGHBOURLY10 at checkout.
