A start towards normality starts on Monday 29th June 2020 when we are allowed to start examining more routine type patients.

 There is still an emphasis on prioritising patients who have problems with their eyes or their vision and we are now allowed to book GOS "NHS" and Private Eye Examinations for all. 

If you are coming to one of our practices for whatever reason you will need to make an appointment and follow guidelines about socially distancing where possible and hand hygiene.

There is a limit on number of people in our practices together. Please wear a mask if you are coming for an eye examination
