Please bear with us! Unfortunately, due to a combination of doctors, nurses, receptionists and other members of our team off sick or self-isolating at the moment, we are working under even more pressure than usual.  We are doing our best to keep everything running normally and we apologise if there are waits or delays, we will be doing our best to try to help you.

FACE MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCING 
Patient update: Face masks to continue:
We would like to ask all visitors to the Health Centre to support us in continuing to wear masks and socially distance whilst in the building. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, we have a lot of vulnerable people who visit us for various treatments and despite immunisation they remain at risk from Covid infections. Secondly, we need you to help keep all our staff safe from infection as the requirement to self-isolate could put our staying open in jeopardy if enough staff are affected at one time. All our frontline staff are double-immunised and we will continue to wear masks and take precautions not to get infected and become infectious. We hope you will help us to continue to keep everyone safe by wearing a mask and social-distancing in the building.
NEVER ALONE
Here are some useful helpline phone numbers for those in need.
