There has been an unprescented challenge to the world presented by the Coronavirus pandemic. As a consequence of significant restrictions of social interaction and the seriousness of the Covid-19 disease and its potential effect on NHS resources, our attention has been diverted to dealing with this emergency. As a consequence there has been a prolonged pause placed on routine cases including private work. We are hoping that as the NHS and the Nation recovers, some private work will gradually resume. Please stay safe in these difficult times.
