Coronavirus: Latest information about the clinic

23.03.20 THE CLINIC IS NOW TEMPORARILY CLOSED

To All Patients,

After twenty two years of continuous opening, the clinic is now temporarily closed as of this evening. We all now need to focus on protecting those in our families and our communities from Coronavirus. I hope this closure will not be for long. Rest assured that when we re-open, we will be more committed than ever to delivering the highest standards in excellence of care to our patients.

Until that time, please check our website regularly for updates. We will be adding details of telephone and video call consultations to support you through this most challenging time.

Keep well,
