Welcome to Summertown Clinic!Picture of the Ruddick's outside the clinic

Sadly we have decided to temporaily close after 45 years of uninterrupted health care for our local community and beyond.

We hope this closure will only be for a matter of 3 weeks and have already contacted the majority of our patients already. If you’d like any further advice please ring us on 01865 5558561 or email us at hello@summertownclinic.co.uk

All patients with a current appointment will be rung by their practitioner to discuss ongoing treatment need and what we can offer.

We are OPEN for Online Consultations from our Osteopaths and Chiropractors, and talking therapists, click here for more information or click on the book now tab to book your consultation.

Please let us know if there’s any way we can help you, but otherwise we look forward to seeing you when we reopen (13th April 2020?).

Stay in touch through our social media to keep up to date with everything going on in and around the clinic.
