• "By far the biggest benefit from my point of view is having the ability to talk with and compare ourselves with like-minded practices on a continuous basis. We do this by attending the annual One-Day Conference and the autumn round of Regional Meetings and indeed on a daily basis through the members "blog" SCDialogue."
    David Samuel – Eyesite

  • "The regional meetings give me and my staff access to a suite of top class presentations. I feel the main benefit to them is hearing about new concepts and ideas from people outside their organisation rather than simply hearing it from the 'boss'."
  • Niall O’Kane
  • "Paul and the team are an invaluable source of support for the independent practice. Paul allows time for consultation regarding any business and marketing issues. He shares his wide experience on many topics. The on-line discussion forum from Sight Care is an excellent way of sharing information to the benefit of our customers and business."
  • Tony Plastow
  • "My staff have always sung the praises of the trainers on every Sight Care course they have attended - which is essential in an industry where there are few qualifications to ensure recognition for all our staff for their achievements. I cannot think of a nicer, more efficient and dedicated team than those at Sight Care - always a pleasure to deal with!"
  • Liz - Oakwood Eyecare
  • "I would commend membership of Sight Care to ALL independent practices as a viable means of not only building their own practices, but of combating the relentless big-business approach of the larger multiples. Sight Care is unique in its aims and aspirations and deserves the support of every single independent practitioner."
  • Keith Holland
