Covid-19 Precautions

Updated 29 June 2021

We are in Level 1 and you are welcome to make appointments to come in as required. If you have been in any areas of concern or had any contact with people from areas of concern please let us know before coming in to the medical centre.

We are still very mindful of Covid-19 so if you have flu-like symptoms, a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, loss of sense of smell or difficulty breathing please phone us on 384 5484 for advice. We can offer telephone consultations to discuss your symptoms and arrange Covid-19 testing if appropriate. Do not come into the medical centre – we will arrange for you to be seen in a separate area.

Prescription Requests

Due to the high number of requests we have coming in could you please allow 48 hours for us to process your request. There is a high number of phone calls for the nurses to manage and they will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience.
