Our reception staff will be contacting patients who have appointments arranged for after 23rd March. This is an evolving situation and updates will be posted to this website and on our social media channels:-

We have already taken steps to transfer our students’ education online and we are exploring different and innovative ways to support their individual clinical education journey.

Ian Fraser, ESO Chief Executive, says: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our patients, staff and students for their support during these challenging times. While we have been following government and professional advice, it is now clear that tackling the pandemic requires strong community action and, as a result, the ESO Executive team has decided it is no longer tenable to continue face-to-face clinical activity. Our priority, as always, is the well-being and safety of everyone connected with the ESO and the wider community”
