Polite Notice – Attending appointments with Children

Where possible please attend your appointment alone. If you do not have childcare, we recommend you reschedule your appointment to a more suitable time.

We understand that this may not always be possible. If you do need to bring your child to the clinic with you, they must be accompanied by an adult who is able to stay in the waiting room with them for the duration of your appointment.

Please be aware, if you do attend an appointment with your child, we may not be able to effectively carry out your consultation or procedure if they are in the clinical room. The clinician will discuss your needs and schedule an alternative appointment time if necessary.
