Consultation update: Covid-19
The government is urging all people to avoid any unnecessary social contact to reduce and prevent the spread of Covid-19. The health and safety of our patients and colleagues is extremely important to us and we all must take care of ourselves and each other in light of this pandemic.
We completely understand that current health conditions and issues should not and will not be ignored. Therefore, we will be offering telephone consultations to new and existing patients who are unwell, self-isolating and not able to travel.
