Welcome! We are ready to help during the COVID-19 crisis

Please wear a mask when you come to Westcare!

It is still mandatory to wear a mask when you go out in public. We also ask you to do so when coming to the medical centre for care. Even though Covid restrictions are easing, we are are keeping up our strict hygeine and distancing precautions.

Remember too that we are still doing many of our consultations by telehealth (video link) or telephone so you can #stayathome. The medical centre is still open if you need to be examined or have a test or procedure, so don’t hesitate to contact your doctor with questions or concerns.

If you are attending the medical centre, don’t forget to bring your mobile phone. We will ask you to call reception when you arrive, to let them know you are here. Wait in your car if possible, and we will let you in as soon as your appointment is ready to start.
