Outpatients Building 

Anyone presenting to the Outpatients Building will be required to sign in upon arrival and will be provided with a mask.

Due to the size of our consulting rooms, to maintain social distancing we prefer that you don’t bring a support person to your appointments as we cannot guarantee that there will be a room available to accommodate support persons.

Exceptions include:

  • If the patient is under 18 years (parent/guardian can attend)

  • If the patient requires assistance with physical or cognitive disability

 

If you have any concerns please call to discuss prior to your appointment.
