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.

Adult Community Referral Centre (ACRC) formally SPOE

Many subsidised services are available to help people remain independent and in their own home through the Adult Community Referral Centre (ACRC), formally known as Single Point of Entry (SPOE). You can be referred to Adult Community Referral Centre (ACRC) through your general practice (GP).

If you are having difficulty with day to day tasks around the home, cooking, or with personal care please discuss this with your GP who will make a referral to the Needs Assessment Team ( NASC ).

Dedicated, caring teams at ACRC work with older people and other caregivers to provide home support and psychiatric/geriatric services including assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.
