  • Face masks are no longer mandatory in non-clinical areas, but you make continue to wear a face mask if you prefer.
  • We ask you not to arrive early for your appointment to minimise contact between patients.
  • Please respect the personal space of other patients.
  • Where possible we ask you to attend alone unless you need support or are attending with your child under 16 years
