How To Find Us

The PBM Therapy Clinic is located in central Derby at 1 Wentworth House, Vernon Gate, Derby, Derbyshire.  DE1 1UR UK.  The Clinic is almost in the dead centre of the UK with excellent transport routes from the UK and Europe. We are in the uniquely enviable position in that we are really easy to get to by air (there are 3 major airports less than 1 hour away – the closest one is only 20 minutes!). If you come by road we are in the M1, M6 and M42 corridor.  Derby railway and bus stations are the hub between the north and south so there are numerous trains and buses every day coming to Derby from all over the country.
