Update for patients with appointments at the Wolverton Centre
Almost all appointments at The Wolverton Centre are currently being done by telephone. If it is necessary for you to be seen face to face, someone from the clinic will let you know. If you are not asked to come to your appointment in person, please stay at home and expect to be called on the day of your appointment.
If you are not registered for home delivery, you can collect a repeat prescription from Kingston Hospital outpatient pharmacy after the phone call.
For those who are already registered for home delivery, medicines will be delivered as normal.
Routine blood tests are cancelled until later in the year.
We hope to make further changes, and start to get things back to normal, in September.
If you have any questions about our services, or have any concerns about your health, please call 020 8974 9331.
