Important Updates

Due to COVID-19 the majority of our clinics are now closed. We have temporarily moved to telephone appointments. Please do not come to clinic unless told to do so. There are significant delays on tests being processed and test results being sent out. Please bear with us. It is important that if you have been asked to attend one of our clinics, you wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth. Wherever possible please attend clinic alone. If there are any specific reasons you need to attend with someone else, this must be discussed during your telephone consultation.
