Due to the current growth in potential cases of the Coronavirus and under guidance from Public Health England we have reviewed our appointment system with the aim to minimise risk amongst our patients, staff and wider community. Same day appointments will not be bookable by patients without the patient first being triaged by a clinician. Face to face appointment booking via our online systems has also been suspended.
