Customer reviews

I felt safer from an infection/ COVID point of view than I was expecting. I’d been putting off coming in because I knew the test would involve close contact with people, and having to touch machines with my face.

Kirsty, Edinburgh - Shandwick Place

I was pleased to be told I could have more in-depth photos taken if my eye. Was happy to pay the £10 as not available on NHS yet
