As the case numbers continue to increase, we have decided to temporarily return to telehealth (phone or video) consults by default. The nurse or doctor will book you in for a face to face consult if needed.

Script requests and other enquiries can be sent via the contact forms on our website.

We are still able to do a limited number of swabs in the afternoons - please use the contact form or leave a message with our nurses (09 416 8541 ext 2) and they will be able to book this is (capacity depending).

The best place to get a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) is still at a Community Testing Centre. Up to date locations for these are here:

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, please visit for further information and instructions.

If you have tested positive on a RAT supplied from work or somewhere else, please register your results online at or call 0800 222 478.

Despite the new COVID-19 Protection Framework, there will be little change to our processes at Hobsonville Family Doctors in the short term.

Telehealth is still our default method of consulting, and all in person consultations will need the approval of a nurse or doctor. At the moment we are continuing with all initial consults being over phone or video, and then asking people to come in for a Face to Face assessment / consult as needed.

Current advice from the three Auckland DHBs attached below:
