AND THE ASHE STREET CLINIC
We are still looking after our patients with acute problems in The Ashe Street Clinic in person or via video link. Non-essential appointments are being postponed till later or may be dealt with by video consultations.
We do not see people with Coronavirus in the clinic. These patients are being managed in their own homes or in hospital. Patients with fever or respiratory symptoms are been seen out of office hours.
All patients who are phoning to make an appointment will be asked the following 3 questions:
1. Do you have a runny nose, sore throat, or cough? (e.g. new cough or worsening of existing cough in the last 2 weeks)
2. Do you have a fever? (e.g. temperature > 38°C taken with a thermometer)
3. Have you had close contact with a known or suspected case of Covid19?
If yes to any of these questions, please do not come to The Ashe Street Clinic. Please phone us on 066 7125611 for further advice.
You can wait in a quiet waiting area in the clinic or you can wait in your car and will only be called in once the doctor or nurse is ready to see you.
Video consultations can also be arranged which is ideal for certain problems that would probably not require a physical examination. Phone us for more information.
Be assured, we are not seeing patients with Coronavirus in our clinic.
