COVID-19 Update

In line  with government advice regarding COVID-19, all face-to-face appointments are postponed until the advice on social distancing changes.

We will be posting regular updates and advice on our Facebook page, and I can still be contacted by telephone for customers who need to discuss their continued care until an appointment can be arranged.

In  the meantime stay safe, and stay well. Andrew
