Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again. THANK YOU
