WOW! What a year it has been!

2020 has certainly flown by so rapidly! Who knew at the start of the year that we would be where we are today!

With the onset of Covid-19, we did everything we could to ensure we could remain accessible to everyone and we have managed to stay open throughout both lockdowns. We have come to realise how important that has been to lots of you. We are hugely grateful for the confidence and trust you have placed in us and, in fact, the practice has probably been busier than ever over the last few months. So, a HUGE heartfelt thank you to all of you who have come through our doors.

We put in place various measures to minimise the risk to anyone entering the practice and we are pleased to say that, throughout the whole year, we know of only one person who subsequently discovered they might have been carrying Covid-19 when they visited the practice. Fortunately, because of the measures we have in place, nothing was passed on to any of our staff or patients.

This year has brought about a lot of change in people’s lives and we sadly had to bid farewell to two of our loyal and longstanding receptionists, Colette Hill and Margaret Kingdon.


Both have been at the practice for many years and were most definitely “part of the furniture”. They were a friendly, reassuring voice on the other end of the phone and a kindly, compassionate face when patients walked through the door, always putting people at ease. We are going to be very sad not to see them sitting behind the desk anymore. We wish them both well and all the very best for the future. In their place, we have found a very capable replacement, the lovely Kate, who will be at the desk and answering your calls on a Friday.

We must bid an emotional farewell also to Cate Hands.

After many years of coming to Wadebridge to use her ‘magic’ hands and expert osteopathic cranial skills on babies and adults alike, has decided to focus her attention on the Lostwithiel Children’s Clinic and on spending more time attending to her farm. We likewise wish her all the best for the future too.

All is not lost, however, as we still have the wonderful Juliet to take care of your little people, as well as all of you grown-ups who prefer the subtlety of the cranial osteopathy approach.
