Visiting our clinics

Most of our clinics are open by arrangement only (the exception is East Oxford clinic on Rectory Road which runs some drop-in sessions for under 18s). Please book a telephone consultation via email / phone. Due to an increase in monkeypox cases in the UK, we will ask you extra questions when speaking to you to keep you and our staff safe.

Mask wearing and social distancing remain in place in all our sites. If you have a new continuous cough, a high temperature, or a loss or change to your sense of taste or smell, do not come to a clinic. Follow the national advice on coronavirus (COVID-19).
