Face to Face Appointments
Please ensure you and your child are physically well. Please DO NOT attend the clinic if you have symptoms of:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
If you are unsure, please contact the clinic first. We can rebook the appointment if you are not well.
Please use the hand sanitiser available in all the clinic bases.
Attending A&E in Emergencies
Please only go to A&E if you are in need of urgent medical attention.
Full details of the emergency crisis care CAMHS service is available here, including contact details for CAMHS service staff that are available at A&E departments in case of an emergency.
