State of health

Please only attend your consultancy or surgery appointment if you appear and feel generally well. If you experience flu-like symptoms before your appointment, please call your GP or the emergency physician hotline (0800 33 66 55).

The result of the consultation will determine whether your procedure can go ahead as planned or if it needs to be postponed. The Federal Office of Public Health’s coronavirus check will also give you information on what to do next and whether you should take a test for COVID-19.

If your procedure needs to be postponed, you or your GP should contact our appointment scheduling team immediately.
