    It is with great regret that we announce that The Malmesbury Healthcare Clinic will be closed until further notice.

    Despite us taking every single precaution we can in the past few weeks, we have decided that we really must put our patients first and do our bit to reduce the chance of spreading the Coronavirus.

    Apologies to anyone booked in this coming week. We will be in contact with you all individually to talk through options. We will be offering digital consultations and phone advice during this difficult period and will be resuming 121 treatments the moment we feel it is safe to do so.

    For more information on our appointment options, please call on 01666 817123 or email on We wish everyone the very best in these tricky times and look forward to seeing each and every one of you when it has passed.
