In order to keep our vulnerable patients, independent doctors, nurses and staff safe, we kindly ask you to make a telehealth appointment online rather than coming directly into the medical centre if you are:

• Feeling unwell with a fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms which could be due to COVID-19.

• within 7 days of testing positive to COVID-19 or continue to have symptoms after a positive test

•  Self-isolating.

• A close contact of someone with COVID-19.

• In quarantine.

• Experiencing a severe medical emergency.

If you’re experiencing a severe medical emergency or severe COVID-19 symptoms, please call  000  immediately and advise the operator if you’re in self-isolation because of COVID-19.

Please be aware that you will be required to wear a mask when attending our centre to protect those at particular risk of COVID-19.
