WellSouth CEO Andrew Swanson-Dobbs said the additional capacity would improve access for people in Dunedin to get testing done quickly and supported general practice teams to care for their patients.
The testing centre is open now until 3pm today. It will be open Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 1pm, subject to demand.
Southern District Health Board medical officer of health Susan Jack said: "Symptomatic people should call 0800 Virus 19 first to be referred to their GP or the testing centre. This way the patients details can be prepopulated in forms and testing can be done more quickly."
WellSouth’s 0800 VIRUS19 call centre operates weekdays from 8.30am to 4.30pm and from 8.30 to 3pm on Saturday and Sunday.
