Covid-19 work update

 

Covid-19 work update

Here is my update for when I can possibly start my practice again, which will be in phase 3 of Nicola Sturgeon’s plan, maybe at the end of July or in August. So there is some light at the end of this long tunnel l!!!!!

But if you need help before please don’t hesitate to call me. At the moment I am offering free of charge until the end of June an online consultation for advice or practical instructions for self-help. So please send me your email address so that we can use Zoom for your consultation or we can do it over the phone or on What’s App.
