We would like to re-assure patients that we remain open for urgent, essential and routine eyecare as we have throughout the Coronavirus pandemic. We have the required measures inplace to protect patient and staff. We will continue to review national guidance and update our policys and procedures as required.
Despite changes in the law regarding the legal requirement for face coverings on 19th July, we are an NHS healthcare setting and will continue to require the use of masks for staff and patients to protect vulnerable patients, those unable to be vaccinated and staff.
If you feel your vision has changed, if you need new spectacles, or have any other concerns, please get in touch now to arrange an appointment.
We are continuing to prioritise essential and urgent eyecare over routine appointments at present, as per the national guidance.
Hearing care will also be resuming. Getting your hearing tested remains free and has never been simpler. Aids are more affordable than ever and can be virtually invisible. Give us a call to arrange your Hearing Assessment.
We have made lots of adaptations to the practice to keep you safe
What changes are we making?
What we are asking you to do?
We ask that when attending for appointments you try to attend alone. If you are attending with anyone else, we ask that, if possible, they stay in a vehicle outside the practice until needed.
If you are unable to get into the practice due to self-isolation but require replacement spectacles or have a concern about your vision please phone for a telephone consultation as the College of Optometrists, General Optical Council and NHS have relaxed regulations to allow us to do more to help.
We really appreciate your ongoing support.
