Whilst there will be a general relaxing of rules on the 19th July, in accordance with our governing body and to help protect the wellbeing of each other and our staff, FACE MASKS WILL STILL BE REQUIRED IN THE PRACTICE.

We often have vunerable patients in our waiting room and we need to ensure our rooms are kept 'clear of infection' to avoid passing on any infection. By wearing a mask you can help us to achieve this.


We are open for all services.

We are operating an appointment only system for all services including adjustments, collections and repairs.

For full details on how we are keeping our patients safe please visit our dedicated coronavirus page.
