The Broad Street Practice

Quality healthcare in the heart of Stamford

ESTABLISHED 22 years ago, in June 1996, by husband and wife osteopaths, Perry Westbrook & Anthea Bentley and having registered almost 14,000 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, counsellors for children, adolescents and adults, sports and therapeutic massage therapists, an acupuncturist, a medical herbalist, a nutritional therapist, a reflexologist and Bowen technique practitioner, 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. There is no need to obtain a referral to the practice from your GP – most of our patients self-refer. 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
