Stay safe this holiday season

19 December 2019

SouthSeas Team Xmas safety tips.

We want to remind our families and communities to keep safe and be aware of available healthcare options over the summer break.

  • For any health concerns, your first port of call is the Healthline on 0800 611 116. Heathline is a 24/7, free and confidential phone service staffed by registered nurses. This is a free phone service. They are able to provide advice on where you should seek treatment if you need it.
  • For an emergency, dial 111 immediately.
  • Make sure you have enough of your repeat medicines, check with your doctor before going on holiday.
  • For any minor injuries or illnesses, a pharmacist is often a good first port of call. Some pharmacies have longer opening hours over the holiday period.
  • Check that you have a first aid kit readily available.
  • On sunny days be sun smart, and don’t forget to slip, slop, slap and wrap.
  • Keep safe around water, wear life jackets when boating and supervise children at the beach or swimming pool.
  • Be safe on the roads, watch your speed, be courteous to other drivers and drive responsibly. Drink sensibly, have a sober driver and know your limits.

The festive season is an extremely busy time for emergency services. In a life-threatening emergency call 111.

Visitors to South Auckland who need to see a doctor can visit us or call to make an appointment on 09 273 9017. Check our website for our opening hours for Christmas and New Year’s or call into a community pharmacy near you for health advice.

Stay safe and have a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas with your families and loved ones.
