••Learning new LESSONS

Training is an ever present part of any Chiropractic business and we have recently taken up the gauntlet to ensure our practical skills are up-to-date.

Under the guidance of an independent instructor, we conducted a fire training session in the practice including increased knowledge on current safety procedures and how to use fire extinguishers. First aid is also particularly important for us so all team members have just recently completed a first aid update.

••and now for the FUN stuff...

TOY DAY  It's that time of year again and as ever we are continually grateful for your support and the gifts that are already rolling in. Appointments for the day are close to full, but if you would like to take part, please call and we will see what we can do.
