Coronavirus update:

We started to reopen our office for appointments only from 17th May.  We have also been making some home visits throughout the pandemic.

Despite the Government’s almost complete relaxation of safety precautions,  we still recognise the need to be careful.

Masks and hand sanitiser must be used by all visitors to our office.

We are operating at a reduced capacity due to COVID and our phone line is often extremely busy.  You can contact us in the following ways:
