Our online booking system is in operation for booking most types of appointments. We are offering telephone travel health appointments to our clients as an alternative to face to face to discuss your needs prior to coming in for an appointment, if preferred.
If you do need to attend you can be reassured that we are doing all we can to protect our clients in the clinic. Appointments are spaced out to make sure you will be seen at the time of your appointment. Clinic staff will also be wearing PPE and cleaning down the clinic room between clients.
Urgent queries will usually be dealt with the same day so contact us via the website or reception at the Tarka Clinic if you cannot wait until our next available clinic time. We can see clients outside of our normal opening hours for urgent vaccinations or PCR tests but please read in the information on our coronavirus page.
How you can help us:
Please DO NOT attend if you have had any symptoms of coronavirus in the last 10 days as you should be in self isolation as per government advice until you have had a test. Also, if someone in your household has these symptoms you should be self-isolating for 10 days to ensure you do not develop any symptoms, or until their swab result comes back negative.
Symptoms of coronavirus include:
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)
new loss of, or change to your sense of smell or taste
If you think you have any symptoms of coronavirus you should go home, self isolate and request a coronavirus test from the NHS website.
We would be grateful if only persons with appointments attend to avoid having additional people within the clinic. We would also ask that you do not arrive in advance of your appointment time and that you wear a face mask or covering to come to your appointment.
Please make sure you use hand sanitiser or wash your hands on arrival.
