Dear Dr reader,

As part of ongoing conversations between the Ministry of Health, ACEM, RNZCGP, and RNZCUC about what constitutes an adequate amount of swabbing for surveillance, we are collectively exploring what capacity the system has and needs.

To help understand what is happening across New Zealand we would be grateful if you completed a short survey being arranged by RNZGP. This will give the Ministry of Health and colleges valuable information on what is happening nationally and how we can achieve swabbing numbers required within the community.

Thank you in advance for doing this.

With best wishes,

David Gollogly, Jasmine Mackay, Richard Chen
Pandemic Response Committee
