A very troubling and uncertain time for all of us

Hello to all of our existing patients and sincere welcome new ones.

This is obviously a very troubling and uncertain time for all of us, both from a home and a work life point of view. We want to take this opportunity to highlight the steps we are taking at Petticrew Optometrists to ensure ongoing provision of our care.

As most of our patients come to the practice by appointment, we have the unique ability to screen for coronavirus symptoms when confirming the appointment by telephone – this grossly reduces the risk of transmission.

We have increased hygiene measures within the practice, have moved to a reduced patient facing schedule and spread our team more evenly Throughout our working week. We know you will be patient with us in our endeavours to continue to provide our products and services given these challenges.

Where possible, we have moved to telephone consultations are very happy to help in whatever way we can.

This is obviously a massively worrying time for all of us, but there is an opportunity in and amongst it, for us to pull together as friends, colleagues, Allied professionals and neighbours, to support each other in every way we can. Already we have seen a reaching out and kindness exhibited in many areas not seen any time recently.

The Petticrew family has been looking after eyes for 133 years – the world has seen much in this time. We will be here for you when you need us. Please accept our very best wishes to all of you from our team here.
