Bedford Practice


Shaftesbury Clinic
Bedford Consulting Rooms, 4 Goldington Road, Bedford, MK40 3NF

Bedford, the county town of Bedfordshire, has long had more to offer than initially meets the eye – not least a rich history, the town’s name apparently deriving from the name of a Saxon chief called Beda. Bedford was a noted market town from the early Middle Ages and even boasted a large castle built by Henry I, subsequently destroyed in the early 13th century.

Today, Bedford remains a fascinating town, with attractions and amenities including the Victorian-designed Bedford Park, the Bedford Corn Exchange and the Bedford River Festival. No less significant, however, are its people, who we know well due to the presence of one of our clinics at 14 Shaftsbury Avenue in the town.
