Due to COVID-19 coronavirus, we are having to make temporary changes to our services as a precaution. 

Our Switchboard and Contact Centre are receiving a high volume of calls asking whether appointments are going ahead as planned. We are looking at how we can reduce our activity and how we can do things differently.

We will keep this page updated with the latest information.

You must contact us if you have an appointment and have a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature.
