Safe Space for Covid Swabs and Assessments


On a rainy Tuesday morning in December 2021, a cabin was craned into the back section of Te Aro Health Centre. 

The cabin is now in place and provides a safe space to do the covid swabs and assessments for Te Aro Health Centre clients. Keeping the main building safe from any potential contamination.

We are so happy to have this new space!

Photos below of the cabin being craned onto the property, Tuesday the 7th December 2021 at 6am.

This was the second attempt as the first attempt the crane wasn’t big enough!
