Clinic Hours: Monday - Friday - 8am - 5pm

Covid-19 Response

We would like all our patients to be reassured that we will be remaining in email contact: and will answer all emails every day.  Please do not call the clinic or leave messages, as we will be working from home.

We will also be endeavouring to contact patients who have bookings between now and 24th April and take action as needed.

From the last week of April we will review whether it will be necessary to defer further bookings and contact you accordingly.  

Dr Brown may be able to have a telephone consultation for some appointments and where this is feasible and necessary, we will try to arrange it.

In the meantime, we hope you will all remain safe and we look forward to seeing you as usual when the current lock down is lifted.
