A MUCH missed Hereford practice is set to reopen its doors next week.

Kyrle House Practice in Kyrle Street, Hereford, began as a multidisciplinary musculoskeletal practice in 2002 under the leadership of the osteopath Robert Blackburn.

The extensive team consisted of osteopaths, physiotherapists, a specialist neuro-physiotherapist, acupuncturist, masseuse, podiatrist, counsellor and a musculoskeletal physician, carrying out injection therapies.

There was also at various times, a nutritionist, a homeopath and a lymphoedema drainage specialist.

Sadly, Robert died last year and his family closed the practice completely in March with the outbreak of the

Covid-19 pandemic.

After brief deliberation Tim Holt, the senior physiotherapist in the group, and Dr Tim Barling, musculoskeletal physician, decided they couldn’t let the unit disappear.

So together they bought the premises and are re-opening the business as Kyrle House Practice on Monday, July 6, initially for bookings, then for consultations and treatment.

The practice time will be fully compliant with Covid-19 safety measures.
