COVID-19 UPDATE: January 2023
We are pleased to be able to offer all our usual eye care services along with urgent and emergency eye care without restrictions.
Currently mask wearing is not mandatory in community optometry practice but If you wish to wear one please do so. Your optometrist will no longer routinely be wearing a mask but if you would prefer they did, please ask.
In addition to the government and NHS guidelines on COVID-19, we still have 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. We can accommodate walk-ins but booking is still advisable. The door to the practice is no longer locked.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Due to the close contact nature of eye care, if you wish to, 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; there is hand sanitiser as you enter the building, in the consulting rooms, and on the reception desk.
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.
