Due to COVID-19 we are attempting to limit in-person assessments for the health and safety of patients and staff.

Information for patients:

If you have an appointment that is scheduled: this appointment will take place by telephone unless you have been otherwise notified. You will be contacted by our administrative staff to confirm in 24-48 hours in advance of this appointment.

If you have been referred but do not yet have an appointment: all new referrals will be triaged and based on urgency you will be provided with an telephone appointment time or your appointment may be deferred.
