Pauline Mather Reg.no.850
Starting from mid October 2016, I will no longer be registered with AXAPPP. I have decided not to renew my registration following some changes they have made to providers' contracts, similar to the changes BUPA made some time ago. So, to be clear, although, most insurance companies will cover costs of treatment with me, please note, BUPA and AXAPPP will not. Please check with your health insurance company before making an appointment.

In 2016, after 29 years of working from the Hydro, it was time to leave, and gently cruise into, hopefully, a long semi retirement.
My partner, Mike Hale has retired, and has given me the case notes of his patients, so, any of his clients are welcome to come and see me  as Returning patients, and as such, do not need to re-register as New clients.

In March 2016 I moved to Jo Livingstone's practice at Cricklade, and have been doing the unsociable hours no-one else wants to do.
I continue to see animals at Thameswood Veterinary clinics, and when not seeing clients, human or animal, I will be attempting to complete my bucket list whilst I am still fit and able. Some of you are interested in this bucket list. There is an A-Z, so, as each milestone is passed, big or small, I will post it on this link:
I hope very much that, you, my valued Hydro clients will move with me.
 I will be available on two weekday evenings and Saturday mornings at the Cricklade practice.
My times are as follows:
Mon.    6pm-8pm
Thurs.  6pm-8pm
Sat.    9am-1pm
My new address is:
Cricklade Osteopathic Health Practice
12 High Street
Cricklade, Swindon                                                                                        
Wiltshire SN6 6AP
Telephone: 01793 750504 for appointments


 Cricklade practice

Fees:    Will change from my present Hydro fees, to be in line with Jo as senior osteopath, to:
 Initial Consultation for people who have not previously seen myself, Mike Hale or attended the Cricklade practice  : (approx one hour): 65.00
Subsequent Treatments: 46.00
Payment by cash or cheque, please
My sincere thanks and appreciation to all of you who have supported me over the years, and I hope I will see you soon in my new home.
Best wishes
