COVID 19 UPDATE


In the event our practice is directly impacted by COVID19, we anticipate at times we may be short staffed which will unfortunately impact our patients.


During these times, we understand it may be difficult to contact our rooms as we will only have limited resources to answer phones and respond to emails.   We ask all patients to please be understanding and respectful towards our staff as we manage these difficult times.

 

We ask that before you ring our rooms you firstly check and read any emails that have been sent from our rooms regarding your referral, appointment or surgery. Our correspondence contains all the information you require for your appointments and surgery.

Thankyou to everyone for your support and patience as we navigate through this period.
