Level One

Level One again... 

We are so happy to be able to help you all again in person.

Please, if you are unwell, awaiting a Covid test or have been in possible contact with a Covid case, don’t come into the clinic. Give the friendly reception staff a ring and we will see what we can do to help you. If you are similar but on farm, let us know so that we can make appropriate arrangements.

We have the Covid tracing App prominently displayed for ease of use, or you can manually sign in. We also have plenty of hand sanitizer available.

Long may Level 1 last!
