This Is Your Ideal
Read on and discover why this is the clinic for you -
and how it is too good
an opportunity to miss...
Situated in the heart of the North
East of England just minutes from the majestic city of Durham, the thriving metropolis that is
Newcastle and the bustling city of Sunderland lies this gem of a practice
Whether you are looking at starting
out on your own or looking to further expand your clinic numbers and grow your patient base –
you won't do better than looking here and reading on because this is a once in a lifetime
Now, some people might think that I
may be biased – but I don't think so.
Let me explain...
Established in 1992 the clinic showed consistent growth
until reaching capacity. Open an average of 27 hours a week the clinic sees approximately 400
patients a month – but like my school reports used to say it “could do much
I work with 15 minute treatment times
and I am old school. I still get patients changed and gowned and there is none of the new
fangled gadgetry like thermography or X-Rays to increase patient compliance and
Nope, there is none of
This practice is purely an acute care
practice where I see patients once a week until they are fixed and then I offer them the choice
of usually a 3 monthly or 6 monthly maintenance follow up.
Can you already see the scope for
improving patient numbers?
Introduce proper wellness or
maintenance care into the practice, reduce treatment times (should you wish) and use more of the
treatment rooms to provide care – and your numbers will sky rocket!
I work in the clinic as a sole
practitioner so just imagine what could be achieved with an associate or two. If you decide this
is the clinic for you (and you'd be foolish if you didn't as the following patient numbers and
turnover show) I am willing to stay at the clinic in a reduced capacity to help you
transition and build the clinic for yourself and anyone else you wish to take
But, before you decide, let me
go on because the clinic turnover speaks for itself.
Whilst the full financials are
available on request I'm not prepared to put them on here for any Tom, Dick and Harry to read.
That said, I can tell you that the gross turnover
for the last 4 full financial years has remained pretty much
consistent - and
that is with me trying to work less hours and less hard.
I cannot get rid of the patients!
I've tried being rude, I've tried
being unkempt, I've tried being uncouth – but still the patients flock to the
I saw 315 new patients and 3947 returning
In 2018 I
saw 297 new patients and 4029 returning
In 2017 I
saw 356 new patients and 4406 returning
In 2016 I
saw 368 new patients and 4381 returning
And this is with me reducing my hours
and trying to work less.
As you can see the numbers
are extremely consistent. The only reason for the slight drop since 2018
was I took even more time off and more holidays - after all I did turn

doors - that's a steady stream of 26 new patients and 330 returning patients per

It appears there is a virus going
about which meant the clinic was closed for a good chunk of the year - but the figures still
aren't too bad.
In 2020 the clinic saw 263 new
patients and 2983 returning patients. That's roughly 22 new patients and 248 returning patients a month - despite
people afraid to leave their homes for fear of the plague and me having had 2 holidays (and one
really long, almost 4 months, enforced one).
When the clinic really got going
again from mid July the figures improved dramatically. In the last 6 months of the year I saw
172 new patients (or 28 a month) and 1763 returning patients (or 293 a
...and I reduced my hours a bit
On top of that I am leaving blank
appointments throughout the day to clean, change PPE, let droplets drop, or whatever we are
supposed to be doing in Tier 27!
And, even more
importantly, all of these numbers are without advertising or social
No advertising, social media -
just a constant influx of patients through the door.
Can you imagine how much impact
actively advertising the clinic would have on patient numbers? I've never wanted to see more
people – so I have never advertised in all the time
I have had the clinic. No Facebook, no web page, no
press releases, no adverts, no fliers, no Instagram, no Twitter, no LinkedIn, no signage –
nothing, nada, diddly, jack, zip, zippo, zilch, not a thing.
Let me repeat that:
With no advertising the clinic
has grown and flourished.
Just imagine how big it would
grow, the number of patients it could see and help, the turnover it could have when people
actually know it exists and they can see it's presence on the Interweb (or whatever
Now, you're most probably thinking
“he must be brilliant to have grown the practice just by word of mouth, he must adjust with
skill and finesse, he must be able to cure just by laying on his hands, people must just be able
to touch the hem of his coat for the lame to walk and the blind to see!”
And you'd be right
Yep, I'm not bad at
In fact I would say I was slightly
better than average.
But I'm not that good. I did try the
walking across water bit once but after sinking realised it wasn't for
Like most people I would like to say
I was brilliant - but I was lucky rather than brilliant.
I was lucky to establish a
clinic in an area where there was no one else and where there is a need – and that is the legacy
I want to pass on to you. I want you to continue seeing the patients I already see and
I want you to see even more of them.
This clinic is ripe for the
...and it should be
The clinic is ready for
At the moment I work just out of one treatment
room and have another room as the reception – but there are another three treatment rooms. Not
only are there more treatment rooms but I have a waiting list of patients ready to fill
“Hmmm” I bet you're thinking,
rubbing your chin in thought and squinting slightly in wonder “if he could fill them
why doesn't he?”
And the answer to that is I just don't want to
work that hard at this stage of my career – I am looking to get less busy and enjoy the odd
glass of wine! I don't want to be working more than I need to. That said, with some young
whipper-snapper running the show or two or three associates working in the clinic it's a
Years ago I used to have associates in the
clinic and they were always busy (before leaving to set up their own clinics). I've had other
practitioners hiring the rooms in the past and this was another great source of revenue for no
work on my part...
...but I don't want to be doing that any more.
I want more holidays and a little bit of a lie in in the morning – I want to be doing less, not
I work on average 27 hours a week. Some weeks I
work four days, some weeks three and a half and some weeks three days. I currently see 90-100
patients a week and that is more than enough for me. But there is scope for so much more with
somebody else at the controls.
I reckon the clinic is operated at about
15-20% of it's capacity!
How many patients could someone see if the
clinic were open 5 days a week? How many would they see if it were like back in the old days
when it was open for five and a half days? How many could they see if they used two treatment
rooms instead of one? Three treatment rooms instead of one?
Crikey, what is the potential if they used
four treatment rooms instead of one and opened for longer?
To be honest this practice has more potential,
possibilities, growth prospects and palingenesis than Peter Piper and his pickled
Let me remind you that at the moment the
practice sees on average 7 new patients a week with no marketing in place.
The potential is
The clinic really does offer you a great chance
to start busy and get busier! Since I have been here I have seen 12,425 patients and there are
over 1,750 of those who I would class as currently active (having been see by me in the last 18
months or so).
There is an obvious opportunity here for any
new owner to undertake any amount of analogue and digital marketing and to increase both the
numbers of returning and new patients dramatically. I mean if I see over 350 new patients a year doing nothing – how many would you see if
you actually marketed yourself? Plus you've got over
twelve thousand inactive patients to chase up and
get back into the clinic under your care.
The clinic offers excellent scope for practice
growth but also the possibility of it being a home. I lived above the clinic for the first seven
years in practice till I moved on and bought another property and it was (is) a great place to
live. You have everything you need here: supermarkets, high street shops (butchers, bakers, no
candlestick maker unfortunately), restaurants, cafes and pubs. Oh yes, there are pubs and quite
a few of them in easy reach. And when the kids aren't in the pubs there are a number of top
class schools in the area!
The clinic has now been completely
refurbished so should you want it purely as a work base you can hit the ground
running – but with a new kitchen and bathroom it is an ideal starter home to get you on your
The clinic is laid out as
Based over two storeys the clinic consists of
the following rooms.
The ground floor comprises
A reception area
A treatment room
A utility room
A changing room

The property was completely renovated in 2014
to a total cost of £65k. This involved:
A new gas central heating system (a Worcester combi
New electrics and lighting
A new kitchen
A new bathroom
New carpets and flooring
New alarm system
New composite front door

repainted in 2020

It's not one of these
places where you can't fit your furniture in and you're never going to hear the sound of “thud,
meow, thud meow” as the cat you're swinging hits off each wall. This is an end of terrace
building that was built when people used to have thirty kids and it was built to last. My
colleagues in the estate agency trade tell me the
clinic is well laid out, in good order and represents a great platform from which to grow a
thriving chiropractic practice. I personally would have just said

If you are an existing chiropractor looking for
an opportunity to put their mark on the profession, or an associate now looking to own your own
practice or move location, - then this is for you. If this is your first clinic at the start of
your career – this clinic will allow you to start busy, get busier and make money without having
to sit and twiddle your thumbs waiting for patients to turn up.
want to sit about playing Fortnite or watching The Witcher – then this clinic really isn't for
you! This clinic is for someone who wants to treat
a lot of people and make a very good living. I can guarantee you will start off with a ton of
eager patients and that there is plenty of scope for expansion.
So really that's all

I want to help you grab a bargain so you
can help me transition into retirement over the next few years (that's if you want me to stay on
and help you!).
Why be an associate
when you could own your own clinic?
This is a fantastic opportunity and there are two
ways it could be yours:
The clinic building is valued at
The equipment and furnishings are valued at an easy
The goodwill is £100,000 - which is an absolute
bargain as the average gross turnover is a lot more than that. (I was going to put the gross
turnover here but I didn't want any Tom, Dick or Harry knowing my business just because they
were nosey and had nothing better to do).
This makes a total of
However, I want to make this even
more of a no-brainer than it already is!
I am willing to let one lucky sod
grab it all for only £260,000!
Of course payment plans can be arranged to suit
(should that be necessary) and we can arrange those if you are interested. This is a
fantastic bargain you really should be grabbing and I want to make it a reality for
you so I am sure we can come to financial agreement - just as long as you don't expect me to be
lowering the price!
You can buy the goodwill and lease the practice
from me until you decide you really want to buy it!
I am prepared to rent the property for £1,000 a

This would be on
a full repairing lease – where you maintain the property and don't make a wreck of my beautiful
clinic. As mentioned above the goodwill is valued at £100,000 therefore that would be
your only investment bar the property rental.
It would take you less than two treatments
a day to cover the rental and after three years you'd have earnt more than enough to have
recouped your investment on the goodwill and have enough left over to buy the property if you

should that be necessary.
Let me remind you once
As it is running at the moment the clinic would
pay for itself in 3-5 years!
If you took it over and a third of the
patients instantly died - this place would still pay for
itself in 5 years!
If you took it over and grow the clinic to its
potential the you would have a fantastic place, a clinic which is even more thriving than it is
now, and it would be all yours in less than 3
