Support for Ukraine
We are here to support staff impacted by the situation in Ukraine and Russia.

Appointment opening hours
We will talk to you about your appointment time. Our appointments are flexible to work around shift patterns and we can provide some choice over where your treatment is provided so you do not have to be seen in the Trust you work in. Appointments are during clinic opening times which are slightly different in some boroughs
