COVID-19 UPDATE: April 2022
We are pleased to be able to offer all our usual eye care services along with urgent and emergency eye care.
In addition to the government and NHS guidelines on COVID-19, we have put additional measures in place to ensure the safety of patients and staff.
Attending the practice
We are still operating a pre-booked appointment system for all examinations, spectacle dispensing and collections. The door to the practice will be locked; please ring the bell for entry.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Due to the close contact nature of eye care, if you are able, please wear a face-covering/mask to your appointment; if you do not have one we can provide one. It is not necessary for you to wear gloves; we will ask you to use the hand sanitiser as you enter the building.
Our staff will be wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), and the examination equipment and all the glasses frames are sanitised after every patient. We have undertaken a thorough risk assessment and the staff have had training on how to implement the requirements. This risk assessment is available on request should you wish to see it.
Booking an appointment
Please call the practice on 01372 466 762.
Please do not book an appointment if you are unwell with COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have had a positive lateral flow test or PCR test. We will be happy to book your appointment for you when you are feeling better.
