Our Clinics
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 CALMS is providing a slightly modified service whilst still supporting you and your regular GP.

You MUST advise the Registered Nurse on the phone if you are experiencing a fever, cough, sore throat or runny nose.

Patients attending CALMS must come with only ONE other person or carer where possible.

Social distancing must be adhered to at CALMS clinics and measures are being taken to ensure the safety and comfort of each patient.
