We support all interests and certificates currently held in the practice include Soft Tissue & Orthopaedic Surgery and ECC.
We work in a bright, spacious purpose-built building. Our practice is particularly well equipped with surgical and diagnostic kit as we have a high proportion of clients seeking gold standard treatment.
A refurbishment and an expansion is due to start in September 2021 which has resulted in the need for an additional RVN to join our team.
