Find Us

Although we are tucked away on a quiet pedestrianized street in Nottingham’s creative quarter, we are centrally located and near many places to park plus local bus and tram stops.

Our Clinic is located at:

11 Malin Hill
The Lace Market


You will see that it connects High Pavement to Pemberton street.

Our phone number is 0115 959 8491. Please leave plenty of time to find us as the doctor may not be able to see you if you are late. This is out of respect for the patients after you and out of respect for you because we cannot rush your appointment.

We are located just off High Pavement in the Lace Market, St Mary’s church is on High pavement as is the Nottingham Contemporary art gallery.

Below is a link to a MAP that we have created that shows you the parking options, train station location and bus/tram stops near to the clinic.

Please first read the detailed description below relevant to your chosen mode of transport. Note that the car parks in Pemberton street are now CLOSED due to redevelopment. If you are planning on DRIVING to the clinic, please click the button further down “On-Street Parking Options” which will show you the best parking options. 

Map of the Clinic

Please note that Malin hill is pedestrianised so you will need to walk the last few minutes to the clinic there are two access routes without steps and one with. The route down short hill and Short stairs obviously has steps, whilst the access from Commerce square (off High Pavement) and Pemberton Street are free from steps but there is an incline.

Bus or Tram

Many of our patients come on the bus or tram which drops them off at the Lace market tram stop. If you walk down to the Nottingham contemporary art gallery and then down High Pavement past the old law courts you are just a few minutes away from our clinic.

From High pavement opposite St Mary’s Church you will see some BIG BLACK GATES between the hungry pumpkin cafe and the Aesthetic Dental Studio. Walk through the gates into commerce square and keep to your left. You will come down a narrow cobbled street and this is the top of Malin Hill… we are about 30 metres down on the left, but you can’t miss us as we have three huge picture windows.

By Car

The best way to park is on-street in the surrounding roads, all just a few minutes walk away from the clinic.

Please note that the car parks in Pemberton street are now CLOSED.

The best examples are:

Poplar street Either in-front of Savai restaurant and Topknot hairdressers, or alternatively besides Biocity, accessed via citylink behind the BBC buildiing.


Cliff Road

Fisher Gate

Although there are many more road & carparks if you don’t mind a slightly longer walk (which is recommended by the doctor)

We recommend Poplar Street outside Biocity as it is the perfect walking distance after your treatment and cheaper at just £1 per hour,  plus there is usually more availability than the RingGo spaces in the lace market. 

Here is a link to help, just click the button and it will take you to the interactive google page.

On-Street Parking Options

Please note that the car parks in Pemberton street are now CLOSED.

By Train

Walk towards the city centre and you have two routes available:

  1. Walk up to the BBC roundabout and then follow the instructions above as if you parked in Pemberton Street car park.
  2. Walk up into the lace market and turn right at the Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery and then follow the instructions above as if you were coming by bus or tram.

When you book your first appointment, you should be asked by our computer system to complete your New Patient forms online, if for any reason you did not complete the forms please check your email for a confirmation which includes a link to the forms and complete them at least 24 hours before your appointment. As a last resort you can arrive 15-20 minutes before your appointment time to complete the forms in the clinic, however, we prefer you to complete them online and in advance so that the doctor can review your notes prior to your appointment, so please only turn up early to complete the forms in the clinic if you have no means of completing the online versions.

If you need to change or cancel your appointment, we require 24 hours notice, which is standard in healthcare clinics.

We look forwards to welcoming you into the clinic.

Kind Regards

The Dorsi Spinal Institute


Monday 2:00 – 7:00
Tuesday & Thursday 8:00 – 7:00
Friday 8:00 – 2:00

Our principal Chiropractor Dr Matthew ABJ Potts has over 20 year experience in healthcare and has developed the unique Dorsi Method that has a waiting list for other practitioners to learn.

Rather than treating everyone the same, our goal is to find the cause of your problems and really understand WHY they have happened. Your treatment plan will be unique to you. The hands-on treatment you receive will be provided by the Chiropractor or Osteopath and a qualified sports therapist. The Chiropractor or Osteopath will take overall responsibility for your care and provide any recommendations plus the spinal manipulation component of your care. Your sports therapist will work on the soft tissues by providing deep tissue massage, traction or stretching and will take care of your rehabilitation: your homework (if necessary.)

The clinic offers a state of the art diagnostic suite including Colour Ultra HD and 3D diagnostic ultrasound and a GE Direct Digital X-ray system due to be installed in early 2019. We also use the latest posture scanners using Infra-red imaging to build a photo-realistic postural avatar of your body. From this scan we can assess your posture, show you where your body is dysfunctional, identifying potential causes for the condition to relapse and most importantly, we re-assess you at regular intervals during your treatment plan without any additional radiation.

Our treatment protocols are ultra specific to your body and may include traction sessions stretching your spine in the exact opposite (Mirror-Image) to its usual incorrect position. You will have a personalised rehabilitation plan designed by our Masters Degree Level trained Rehab Consultant.
