Coronavirus Outbreak Management


Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we have been instructed to reduce our face-to-face consultations.
Our main priority is to prevent elderly or vulnerable patients mixing with the unwell in our waiting room.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

 For these reasons the appointment and consultation system will change in the following ways:

  1. All requests for consultations will be assessed by phone call initially.
  2. Many consultations will be conducted by phone call and some by videocall.
  3. Manage My Health self appointments can be made for telephone appointments only.
  4. All prescriptions will be sent by fax or email directly to the pharmacy of your choice, we will not allow pick-ups at St Luke’s Health Centre.
