When you decide to have acupuncture treatment at The Broad Street Practice (with Duncan or Jo), you’ll want to be sure you’re going to be in safe hands. Seeing our acupuncturists will bring peace of mind for all of the following reasons…..

Degree-level training – British Acupuncture Council members are fully trained in acupuncture to degree level, meeting standards laid down by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Codes of professional behaviour – All members agree to abide by the BAcC’s codes of professional conduct and safe practice, which lay down benchmark standards for the whole of the UK acupuncture profession.

Professional development – Every member has to undertake at least 30 hours continuing professional development a year in order to remain on the BAcC register.

Reliable information – The British Acupuncture Council can give you clear and accurate information to help you choose an acupuncturist able to meet your needs.

Complaints procedure – Any complaint made against a member is handled fairly and robustly by the BAcC. In addition, the British Acupuncture Council will not admit any acupuncturist who has been struck off another accredited register.

Public recognition – The British Acupuncture Council is widely recognised and supported by other key health and care stakeholders in the UK.

PSA approved – The British Acupuncture Council has been rigorously assessed by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) and awarded the PSA quality mark. All of our members are part of this government-backed initiative to protect the public. Indeed, the PSA recommends that the public only see practitioners who belong to an accredited – or statutory – register: https://tinyurl.com/jo8oo5f


The Broad Street Practice

Quality healthcare in the heart of Stamford

ESTABLISHED in 1996 by husband and wife osteopaths, Perry Westbrook & Anthea Bentley and now with over 12,750 registered patients, we are a practice committed to providing excellence in complementary healthcare.

PROFESSIONAL and highly qualified, our experienced team of independent practitioners will adapt treatment to suit patients of all ages and most states of health. All practitioners are insured and registered with their relevant governing bodies. We work closely with NHS services and private health providers and our fees may be recoverable from many health insurance schemes (please check with your provider).

OUR COLLECTION of like-minded practitioners include osteopaths, acupuncturists, counsellors for children and teens, sports and therapeutic massage therapists, a medical herbalist, a nutritional therapist, a private GP and a specialist in skin camouflage make-up.  90% of our patients arrive at our door through word of mouth recommendation; sent by friends, work colleagues and other healthcare professionals – many of whom are our patients themselves.

APPOINTMENTS are available from Monday through to Saturday, with some early morning and late evening appointments, we endeavour to keep some short notice appointments available for urgent cases. We have a fully staffed reception, an ‘out of hours’ answer-phone and emergency contact telephone number. Choosing which might be the most suitable treatment option for you can often be confusing so please call the practice and a member of our knowledgeable reception team will try to help. Should your enquiry be more complex, they will try to arrange a free, informal chat with one of the practitioners.

IN THE HEART OF THE COMMUNITY the practice is easy to find in the middle of Stamford, on the corner of Broad Street and Star Lane. Our doors are open and our friendly staff are ready to welcome you and deal with your enquiry.  Call us on 01780 480889
