Protection Framework- Life at Orange
As at 11:59pm on Thursday 2 December 2021, all of the South Island moved to the Protection Framework (Traffic Light Setting- Orange) and St George's Cancer Care Centre will be operating under those protocols.
Please do not visit if:
You are feeling unwell, or
Had any potential recent exposure to COVID-19
Please check in at reception when you arrive at St George’s Cancer Care Care using the Ministry of Health’s NZ COVID-19 Tracer App or alternatively sign in. This is to help you record where you have been and is mandatory.
You will be screened by reception team prior to treatment or consultation.
It is mandatory to wear a mask when entering our centre and 2m physical distancing is observed where appropriate.
A support person may accompany you to your appointment for consultations only if necessary. They will be required to register their details either via the COVID-19 Tracer App or by signing in at Reception. If they are feeling unwell they will not be allowed entry.
Hand sanitiser is available throughout the Hospital for your use
We will be following the Ministry of Health guidelines regarding populations for vaccination. For patients on chemotherapy treatment we will need to work around treatment dates as this may impact the efficacy of the vaccine.
If you are currently receiving chemotherapy please let us know when you are notified of a vaccine date from your GP.
Please note we will not be giving the vaccines at the Cancer Care Centre as these are managed through the community.
4. Patients who had radiation therapy that lowered their immune system in the 6 months before they were vaccinated are eligible for a third COVID vaccine dose. This dose can be given from 8 weeks after your second COVID vaccination. If this applies to you, please see your GP to sign a consent form and get a prescription for this dose.
If you fit into these categories, please contact your primary care provider who will facilitate you accessing your third dose.
