The Patrick and Menzies Team

We’re a friendly bunch…

We choose our people very carefully and we’re proud of their commitment to providing the best and most comprehensive service to each and every customer.

We understand if you prefer to see the same optometrist on each of your visits and will arrange that for you. (Don’t worry if you can’t remember their name – we’ll be sure to know who you mean!) And we promise to always make time to really listen to what our patients are telling us. We’ll never rush you or dismiss worries. Giving each customer our fullest attention is the only way to be sure we are really understanding your needs and desires.

Our usual great service –
just a little different.

We’re open and looking after your eyes, glasses, and contact lenses as normal, just with a few alterations to how we go about things. As per our professional guidelines, we are prioritising those people who are having trouble or are concerned about their eyes, vision, or visual correction. We can see routine appointments but are asking those with no issues just to book a little further in advance to allow us to leave room for those people who are experiencing difficulties.

To keep us all safe, and to comply with guidelines, all staff have appropriate PPE and training and will observe social distancing wherever possible. We will perform as much of your consultation as we can at an appropriate distance, or remotely before you arrive at the practice.

Our New Procedures

  • Our practices are operating by appointment only. Appointments are needed for all visits, whether that’s for an eye examination, to collect your spectacles or for any other face to face query.
  • You can request your appointment by phone, online or by email
  • Everyone visiting the practices will be asked to wear a mask or face covering and sanitise their hands on arrival.
  • Please attend your appointment on your own unless you have to have someone with you for mobility or other health reasons.
  • We ask that children only attend with one parent.
  • We request card payments only, or BACS before you collect your spectacles.

Finally, and most importantly, please do not attend if you feel unwell and have developed any of the symptoms of Covid-19, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has.

Thank you for your help in helping us, look after you.
