Please note that due to the coronavirus we are deferring all appointments for further care. The progression of the virus throughout the region will determine when we can re-start seeing routine patients again. We do hope that we can get the service up and running and soon as possible.

Should you feel that your symptoms are causing you serious concerns or that you feel you cannot wait for further contact please do contact your GP as soon as possible or in an emergency situation please attend your local Accident and Emergency Department.

Once we are in a position to resume the service we will be in touch with patients individually.
