Immediate changes to how we see patients / Flu vaccinations ON HOLD

Dear patient

APPOINTMENTS
In an effort to help contain the spread of Covid-19 we were instructed yesterday to make changes to how we see patients, and to dramatically reduce the number of patients we see face-to-face.

From Monday 23rd March 2020 we will only be seeing patients in person when it is deemed clinically necessary by one of our doctors or nurses.
