Pacific Health Service Update: good news!
We are very happy to announce that we have now received approval by the MBIE to dispatch directly to essential services and home addresses during the Alert Level 4.
This will allow Practitioners to work remotely with their clients, whose prescriptions can then be directly couriered from our warehouse to a home address. Those of you purchasing for yourselves can also have orders delivered to a home address.
We are still able to courier directly to "essential businesses" who are operating during Alert Level 4.
Please get in touch with us for more information on our operating processes and restrictions during Alert Level 4.
Yours in health,
The team at Pacific Health

Update: Pacific Health dispatching to essential services
We hope this post finds you doing well during these difficult times.
Pacific Health is now able to courier to essential services during the Alert Level 4 period. Essential services include pharmacies, medical doctors, veterinary clinics and some others.
We are unable to courier directly to clients, even of those of essential services, only to the essential clinic or service itself.
If you are currently operating as an essential service, please email your orders to [email protected] with the title "Essential Service". We will be opening our warehouse with a small team of staff each Monday to process orders in this category.
We hope that the Practitioner organisations will be successful in their petitions to the government to include them as essential services so we can continue to supply our Practitioners with Practitioner-only products during the Alert Level 4 period. We will keep you informed on any updates we receive.
We appreciate your support and would like to re-iterate that you can still contact us for queries and technical support during the Alert Level 4 period.
Yours in health,

Stay home, stay strong and be kind
At 1 pm on 25th March Cabinet ruled that Natural Health services are "non-essential" and therefore we can no longer dispatch orders until the end of the four-week lockdown period.
Orders which we did not have a chance to dispatch and any orders received during the lockdown period will be dispatched once we re-open.
Our team is still working hard to answer your emails and messages and we will have our technical support team online to help with your queries as normal.
We appreciate that this will be difficult for many of you but we all have to work together to stop the spread of COVID-19.
And finally, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best, take care of yourselves and each other.
Yours in health,
The team at Pacific Health
