Our routine appointments are now done via telephone or video call. When all the routine telephone calls have been booked or it is after 12 noon, we can only deal with urgent medical problems that cannot wait until the next working day. However, we are still doing INR blood tests, baby vaccinations, whooping cough vaccinations for pregnant women and ante-natal clinics.
If you have to attend one of these appointments, please:-
- Attend the Health Centre alone;
- Arrive at reception just in time to check in;
- Please wear the mask and gloves provided by the receptionist before going to the appropriate waiting area;
- Only one parent or Carer to accompany the child to the baby clinic.
These measures have been put in place to protect patients and staff. Thank for co-operating thus far. Please continue to do so!
