We are ready to give you any support you need during these challenging times. Your Health Service may look a bit different this year as we lean towards virtual medicine for the protection of all.
A virtual clinic is a consultation with the nurse or doctor by phone or video call (using Microsoft Teams) instead of a face-to-face meeting. If it is medically required for you to attend the Health Service, this can be organised for you. Click here to find out how to make an appointment with the Health Service or have Covid-19 Symptoms.
