Changes to Bromley Healthcare service provision as a result of the current global Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak

To enable Bromley Healthcare to respond to the challenges of COVID-19 we have taken the necessary steps to suspend our routine (non-essential) services with immediate effect. This will enable us to divert our staff to support the delivery of our essential services.

Please only contact us if your call is urgent.

Attending Appointments
Patients attending any clinic appointments will need to wear a face covering to reduce the risk of transmitting coronavirus to others.

Children or for those patients for which this would be detrimental to their clinical condition may choose not to wear a face covering. Please check with the service you are seeing before attending without a face covering to confirm that this has been agreed.

Coronavirus Covid-19

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a type of coronavirus.

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms.

Stay at home if you have either:

  • 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)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
