Coronavirus COVID-19: statement of policy – updated 16th March 2020

This statement sets out my most recent policy with regard to the current situation with the novel Coronavirus COVID-19. 

Following the announcement made on Monday 16th of March by the UK government on social distancing that encourages everyone to work from home where possible, I am no longer able to offer in-person appointments. All new or existing appointments will now only be offered by means of phone call or video conference consultations. If you already have an appointment booked with me and wish to cancel it, you will not be charged. 

You might find the following links helpful:

UK government help and advice on social distancing and for vulnerable people

UK government stay at home guidance 

World Health Organisation information 

I hope to be able to return to offering in-person appointments as soon as possible and will certainly post that information as soon as that is the case. 

My very best wishes to you all.
