Coronavirus Update 2.
Since the recent relaxation of some lockdown measures I have now started to put in place amendments to my practice including sourcing PPE and making my room easier to clean and sanitize. I am hoping to be able to re-open in a limited capacity within the next few weeks as soon as I can get measures in place. At present we are still very limited as to whom we are allowed to see in person and have to allow extra time to clean and disinfect between consultations. Patients will have to be screened by means of telephone triage before attending and should still stay at home if they are in a high-risk group. I am anticipating it will be possible to see some patients from mid-June onwards.

Coronavirus Crisis Update
It is with regret that I have now suspended face-to-face consultations as I feel it is not possible to guarantee the safety of my patients and myself during the current health emergency. I continue to be available for advice either over the phone or by e-mail and I hope to be back working in my clinic as soon as possible. I am very sorry to have had to take this decision but I think it is the right one in the current climate. I extend my best wishes to all my current and future patients and hope that you stay safe and well. In the meantime I will try and include some helpful advice on this website for those who need to self-manage their symptoms at home.
