About The Practice

The Practice was established in the mid 1970's by Dr Wayne Addison. It has grown over the years and changed site in 1992/3 to its current location. The building was purpose built at that time and houses four modern surgeries. The practice is highly equipped for both clinical delivery and also behind the scenes, record keeping and decontamination. Our surgeries are equipped to the highest standards with modern equipment.
In 2011, a major investment in facilities has been completed. With changing regulations comes different demands on the premises. We have developed not just one, but two dedicated rooms for decontamination of instruments using the latest equipment. In the course of doing this, one of our surgeries has been completely rebuilt, increased in size and specified at the highest clinical delivery standards.
In December 2017 the practice was purchased by Dr Karun Farmah and his brother Dr Rohit Farmah.
