The clinic timetable gives you more information about what service you can expect at each clinic, including information about those offering appointments and/or drop in. It is important that you are seen by the right person in the right place, therefore if you are unsure which clinic to choose, please contact our service for further information/advice.
The drop in clinics often get busy and we may need to offer you an alternative clinic to attend if you arrive and are not able to be seen.
