In order to keep our vulnerable patients, independent doctors, nurses and staff safe, we kindly ask you to make a telehealth appointment online rather than coming directly into the medical centre if you are:
• Feeling unwell with a fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms which could be due to COVID-19.
• within 7 days of testing positive to COVID-19 or continue to have symptoms after a positive test
• A close contact of someone with COVID-19.
• In quarantine.
• Experiencing a severe medical emergency.
If you’re experiencing a severe medical emergency or severe COVID-19 symptoms, please call 000 immediately and advise the operator if you’re in self-isolation because of COVID-19.
Please be aware that you will be required to wear a mask when attending our centre to protect those at particular risk of COVID-19.
