Simply Stand Up!

One of the down sides of having such a lovely scooty chair behind the clinic reception desk, is that it makes it quite hard to get out of it. I often scoot across to the filing cabinets, and could even scoot across the room to feed the goldfish! Here's an article from The Guardian which I must take on board... to not just lazily scoot, but stand up, whether I need to or not. As the majority of us are now sat reguarly at desks and screens, this is something we should all read and remember!

A New Season Welcome!

Yesterday was the 1st day of September, which the Met Office consider to be the first day of autumn, though we are managing to keep the front door open to the last rays of summer sun. Here at The Chandos Clinic, we hope that everyone has enjoyed a happy, healthy summer and that all the children starting or returning to school today, do so with confidence and excitement. Whether you're an existing or new patient, we look forward to welcoming you at the clinic during this new season.
