Our mask policy has recently changed, in line with Public Health Advice.
We ask all patients with recent onset respiratory symptoms (runny nose, new cough, sore throat, temperatures) to take an antigen test on the day of their appointment, and to wear a mask on the premises.
Patients without respiratory symptoms are welcome to wear masks during appointments, and those asymptomatic patients without symptoms can also choose not to wear masks.
Clinic staff will continue to wear masks during appointments.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to work in an efficient and safe manner.
