CHIC Order Processing during the public health response to COVID-19

All CHICs are closed to visitors at the current alert level and until further notice. Therefore you may not be able to pick up resource orders.

You may experience a delay in the processing of your resource order. This is due to limited staff capacity and also issues with the availability of some resources.

Other ways you can order resources

You can also order resources from CHIC via mail, fax and email.

You can also visit one of our centres in Timaru and Greymouth to view or order resources.

Unfortunately you cannot visit or drop in to the Christchurch CHIC to view or order resources.
