We have saved our membership fee twice over with Cardsaver, practice insurance and phone lines.We would never not be a member of SightCare. The support we get from a business point of view through the conference, meetings, email forum, training seminars –  it all gives us lots of ideas to take back to the practice and discuss with the team."

Davina Dosanjh – Richard Petrie Optometrist


When I took over from the previous owner who had been a SightCare member it was easy to see why he had thought it so important. Having support with peers and another organisation which is there as a point of contact to support you is invaluable. I really value the Buying Group which makes products more affordable and saves a lot of time on administration. We always find SightCare events really useful – particularly to attend as a team where we can reflect on ideas back at the practice in team meetings.

We remind ourselves every year what good value the newsletter represents when we come to pay our annual SightCare fee. Another  supplier of marketing material has quoted us for a similar product £595 for 2000 and £895 for 4000. We usually pay  £260 to have an additional 2000 each year from SightCare so we could be paying over £600 more.

Gerry O’Hear – Mearns Opticians


Since joining SightCare, I have found the email forum invaluable. It is a fantastic platform to discuss all things Optometric within the Independent sector, whether it is a simple question to your colleagues regarding pricing, to more in-depth discussion surrounding Tax and VAT.  I would highly recommend SightCare to any independent practitioner who wishes to engage with like-minded independent practitioners, and a passion to improve their services within our industry.

John Davidson – Innovative Eyecare


SightCare provides me with an overarching support network to help me develop my business. The components are numerous, including Evolution programme which helped me achieve a 10% growth this year, and the email forum which I find invaluable as a sounding board. On top of all that, the annual fee for membership is swallowed up by moving PDQ transactions to the preferential PDQ rates offered to SightCare members, giving access to all these resources with no major outlay. Excellent value! No brainer!

"What a fantastic resource the knowledge hub is. I've used the PR/Social Media calendar as our template for 2018 which is great, because it gives basically a checklist of things for me to do - which is much easier."

Back at the end of 2017 we had a letter arrive from an audiology company asking if we would be interested in their services, a service I’d never really thought about offering our current pxs and the surrounding community. Long story short after speaking to John he put us in touch with a group very much like SightCare but full of audiologists rather than Opticians! After speaking with a member of the HearCare team we were introduced to a local independent Audiology company who had the same values as Cheryl and I have for our practice. Our clinics started in May, provisionally as a 4 weekly thing and so far, after sending out a letter to all our over 60 cx we are now booked up until July. That’s after we increased the amount of clinics, which is now 1 day (a day we haven’t got our own clinic) every 2 WEEKS.

We work on a commission basis rather than renting the room, our staff 100% back the venture, by mentioning it to our cx and the occasional Facebook post. We have had posters and window decals made by the company and are still inundated with calls asking us to book hearing tests-the majority of who don’t want to step foot in chain stores or who have been to places like these and wish they never bothered.

Independent hearing care + independent optical care (especially if you have the space) =winner.
