Your appointment - what you need to know

You may be asked to attend a virtual clinic, but if are attending an appointment in person, please be assured that we are doing everything we can to keep you safe. Social distancing measures are in place, and all staff that you meet will be wearing face masks. You will also be asked to wear a face covering at all times.

Information for visitors

We have measures in place to allow us to accommodate visiting in a safe and managable way, which include limits on when and how many people can visit during the day. Find out more here:
