  • The practice is situated in Oxford city centre. The practice occupies a building which was constructed in 1932. The premises has not been modified extensively due to planning restrictions. Some adjustments had been made to the rear entrance for patients with mobility issues. The practice is accessible by public transport (bus and train). All patient services are spread over the three floors. The practice comprises of seven consulting rooms, one treatment room, three patient waiting areas and administrative and management office and meeting spaces.
