Gynaecology update - Covid 19
We are continuing to operate routine clinics and surgery but some appointments will be via telephone rather than face to face. If you do not need to come to clinic, you will have a telephone appointment. Please note that our clinics may not run to time so please allow up to an hour for the appointment. If you are unable to answer your telephone you may be discharged from the clinic.
As space is limited in the Women’s Health Centre, you will not be able to attend with a family member or friend unless there are certain circumstances e.g. you need to attend with a carer.
