Private Clinics & Services

We have a number of non NHS funded therapists who work from 28 Beaumont Street, and their details are listed below. We very much value working alongside these highly professional people who can offer alternative insights and experience into healthcare which is not currently available as part of routine NHS care.

If you are interested in any of these therapies please contact the individual practitioner directly to arrange an introductory consultation.

Please note. These therapists are not part of the practice team, and not funded by the NHS. For this reason they are not regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Each of the therapists listed below are members of a reputable professional body which holds regulatory oversight for the performance of practitioners on its register. They all d hold up to date insurance for their clinical practice. In the case of the acupuncture practitioners, their clinic rooms have been approved by the Oxford City Council for the practice of acupuncture.

The 28 Beaumont Street Practice cannot take responsiblity for the therapies which are offered in the practice by the private practitioners, but if you have any concerns about their care please discuss with the practice manager who will support you in contacting the relevant professional body for the therapist if necessary.
