Currently, all Opticians are closed for routine appointments, but available for emergency and essential eye care.
We are still working to guarantee you get the services and products you require. However, while ensuring that all our patients eye care needs are met, we also have to balance the need to protect you, along with our amazing team of staff.
During this time, we are operating on a locked door policy, and are initially only offering consultations by phone with our Optometrist, Jordan. These appointments can be arranged by telephoning the practice on 01698 263068. Face to face appointments will only be scheduled if our Optometrist believes that it is absolutely necessary and within your best interest. If this is the case please expect a few extra questions about your general health, as due to new guidance, we need to make sure you are not symptomatic of COVID-19 before you attend. Anything routine will be scheduled as soon as regulations are lifted and we are able to see you again. To minimise risk during this period, we only have a skeleton staff working, so your emails and phone calls may not be dealt with as quickly as you would normally expect.
FOR EVERYONE'S PROTECTION, PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE PRACTICE WITHOUT A PRE-ARRANGED APPOINTMENT AS OUR STAFF WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ASSIST YOU.
If glasses are lost or broken, we can provide replacements and deliver where necessary. It is essential that if your child wears glasses that replacements are not delayed. Phone us immediately to arrange a replacement pair.
Should you require a supply of contact lenses or solutions, please call us to arrange this. We have a temporary home delivery scheme in place for contact lens patients.
These are worrying times for us all, but the whole team at G & C Leggate will be working hard through this period to ensure we provide the best care and service that's possible within the rules we now have to follow.
Please take care and stay safe.
