Disabled Access

The Arch Clinic has no disabled parking spaces. Due to the age of the building we do not have a disabled toilet however our waiting area and downstairs treatment room have plenty of space for wheelchairs to manoeuvre.

Children under the age of 16

Children under the age of 16 years must have a parent or guardian present at their initial consultation. For further appointments, the presence of a chaperone will be at the parent or guardian’s discretion.

Chaperone Policy

Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. All our practitioners are DBS registered. A friend or relative of a vulnerable adult wishing to accompany the patient to a consultation or treatment must first obtain the patient’s consent if they intend to accompany them into the treatment room during the consultation and/or treatment.
