All our 3 clinics are temporarily closed
In light of the latest government advice regarding Covid-19 we are closing our clinics for all appointments with immediate effect, as of 24th March 2020.
We have been preparing for this and a member of our team will be in touch with you in the next few days to cancel/rearrange and update you on the situation if you have an appointment.
We are still here to help and support you
We will be available for phone and video consultations to continue to help and advise you in the best way we can during this very difficult time. More information on this will be coming soon. In the meantime please call and leave a message and we will get back to you if you need to speak to us.
We have been dedicated to providing excellence in healthcare in Bristol since 1993 and will continue to do so in the near future.
Stay safe everyone in these unprecedented times.
