A Note That Telephone Consultations Are Preferred.

As a medical practice, we encourage all patients to book telephone consultations, unless it’s absolutely necessary to have a face to face consultation with your doctor.

Note that this is currently a temporary six-month Government measure initiated as of March 2020.

These measures will allow people to access essential health services in their home while they undergo self- isolation or quarantine, and reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for vulnerable people in the community.
