We regularly monitor this situation and will update any information as it becomes available.

COVID-19 precautions
We ask that you only bring one person with you to the clinic.
This is to reduce the potential risk of exposure from COVID-19.

Make sure any person accompanying you also does not fit any of the above exclusion criteria. If they do, they should not attend.
