Important information for all patients

The Mortimer Market Centre will be conducting essential improvement building works starting Monday 20 June which are expected to last for 6 weeks. We will make every effort to minimise the impact of these works on clinics, however:

  • All quick check appointments will be on an appointment only basis for about 6 weeks and will be available at the Crowndale Centre in Mornington Crescent.
  • Treatments, emergency contraception and PREP monitoring will continue to be at Mortimer Market in the Green Zone.

Thank you for your patience.
