"I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service I received today. I work in touring theatre so I am never near my own doctor and needed to use the walk-in service about a post viral problem with my ears. I was seen very promptly, received a quick and accurate diagnosis. My nurse practitioner Jane explained the problem to me very clearly and offered me a number of very good options for treatment. She was extremely friendly and professional, and I left the practice feeling very confident about my recovery. Your reception staff were very welcoming too. All in all, a job well done. Thank you"
