All aspects of the service are excellent in centre, though I would like it better if the centre had a telephone number that got through direct to Stratstone Tynesdie and not to a central Stratstone call centre.

Service

I am sorry that you don't feel our regional contact centre to be of benefit when booking in, we have this to streamline the process and hopefully when you next need to contact us you will see the benefits of this.
