We offer a confidential service and can refer you on to more appropriate services if necessary. Priority will be given to people who live in the local area. Sometimes people who work or study close to the clinic choose to come if the opening times suit them.
If you are registered with any of the local GPs they may refer you to our clinic if they feel you would benefit from specialist advice.
GP practices also offer most of these services.
It’s always worth asking first at your local practice to find out what is available.
