During the COVID-19 pandemic Mr Jourdan is continuing to consult with patients. In most cases consults are happening over the phone or video links. Urgent investigations and treatments can still be accessed at a hospital site where patients and staff are being screened before entry is permitted

If you are troubled with symptoms don't ignore them. There is still safe way to get yourself checked. You can contact my secretary Katie using the standard phone line. 

Stay safe, stay well, we are here to help.
