COVID 19 UPDATE – We have started inviting clients back into the practice however in order to maintain social distancing we are allowing just 4 clients/visitors in, at any one time. When numbers are reached, you may be offered a pager/buzzer as an alternative and asked to wait outside. Face coverings are required and if you do not have your own, they can be purchased from us.

We kindly request only one member of the family attends, where possible and aim to get for us at the correct time for your appointment to avoid ongoing delays.
Our standard opening hours are back to normal and can be found here
