We can confirm that our Sheffield and Barnsley offices are now open.  We are ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all our staff and clients by offering an appointment only service.

Please do not attend without firstly making an appointment.

To help us manage this we will be keeping our office doors locked so we can ensure that there is only ever one client in our reception area at any given time.  We would also ask that you attend your appointment by yourself where possible to ensure we are limiting the number of people attending at the office.

If you are unsure of what to do, please telephone our offices on 0114 358 3134.

Please note our Free Wednesday Clinic is currently suspended until further notice.
