We are monitoring the coronavirus closely and are making the relevant adjustments to our practice to keep our patients and our team members as safe as possible. Patients that have a fever, cough, sore throat or breathing difficulties should inform our reception upon booking on the day or before arrival. You may be asked to wait in your car and a doctor will phone you before entry to the clinic. In an endeavour to comply with social distancing requirements we are reducing the number of patients in our waiting room by asking you to come to your appointment alone. Your partner, friend or companion are welcome to wait in the car for you but we ask that they do not wait in the waiting room for you.

We have also created a coronavirus leaflet to assist you with important information. Please click the button below to download a copy of the flyer. Thank you for co-operation with these new processes and we look forward to working with you through these difficult times.
