Dr Esme David
It's a challenging time for most of us with COVID-19 and I firstly wanted to say thank to all of you who have shown goodwill and patience towards myself & staff during this time.
Covid-19 is certainly rapidly changed things however as an essential service Apollo Medical is very much open to provide for your ongoing care. As a GP, I too, am working differently to try and reduce the spread of COVID-19. This means I am doing most of my patient consultations by phone (I may be able to offer video consultations in the future).
There is a surprising amount that can be done safely without completing a physical in-person examination. If, following the telephone consultation a further examination is required, this can be arranged. I can arrange for you to be seen by a GP in our practice in a safe environment, protecting you from the risk of catching COVID-19 or I can refer you as appropriate to hospital or an urgent care. I am still doing face to face consultations (albeit limited) and if non-urgent will endeavour to see you personally in the medical centre.
Looking after ourselves and our families is more important than ever. I can continue to provide safe care for your health needs and long term conditions. My usual working hours remain unchanged and am available Monday to Friday.
You can send me a message, request repeat prescriptions and book an appointment via telephone 09 477 3700, online via ManageMyHealth patient portal or email firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no denying that these are difficult times. I am here to help as best I can.
