Their main branch is in Charlton, Andover and they have 2 further branches; their Ludgershall branch runs consults and operations, and finally, their Whitchurch branch is consult-only. All 3 branches sit within a stone’s throw from the countryside, with fast links to London (car and rail) and the coast within 1hr 30mins. You also have easy access to the West Country and Wales (both within 2hrs drive).
