This criteria will be discussed with you when you make your appointment. We continue to encourage the elderly or those who are immuno-compromised to utilise our Telehealth services.
At this stage we are unable to give you a date for the resumption of our onsite Exercise Rehab Classes. Our online Exercise classes will continue for the foreseeable future.
