Please remember, limiting our interactions with others is our best defence against COVID-19. Please don’t visit the hospital if you don’t need to. The following level 2 visitor restrictions are in place for all Canterbury DHB health facilities:
Visitors will be screened and asked to provide contact details upon arrival
Visitors who are unwell or have suspicion of COVID-19 will not be able to enter
Aged residential care: no visitors, however, family visits for palliative care residents who do not have COVID-19 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Specific and detailed visitor restrictions that apply to each hospital are available on our COVID-19 page.
Christchurch Hospital Emergency Department (ED) is open for emergency and urgent serious medical issues 24/7. People need to enter ED using a separate external entrance at the far end of Christchurch Hospital's Parkside East building.
If you have an accident, injury or illness that needs urgent medical care, you can just walk into Moorhouse Medical Centre at any time. No appointment is necessary. We are open 8am to 8pm, 7 days, including public holidays.
