What our members say
John Davidson, Querido & Davidson
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!
Steve Woodhouse, Woodhouse Opticians
"Since joining the Sight Care Business Development programme we have seen a 25% plus growth in our business and it has completely changed me and my staff for the better. "
Anthony McIvor, Keyes Eyecare
"We joined SightCare’s DPO service and was a bit concerned about workload and value but nevertheless took the plunge. A few month’s in now and we are confidently compliant. We have also received an immediate response to every query we’ve raised. If you looking for an external DPO (as recommended) you won’t do better than the looking at the SightCare Service."
Faisal Bashir, Ellis Bass Optometrists
" We joined the SightCare DPO service and by return we had a template Compliance Report and full set of Compliant Procedures and Polices. It was a fairly easy step (with help of SightCare’s DPO) to apply these to our business. In the unfortunate event of a data breach, I have a comprehensive folder full of the relevant documentation, ready to present, if the need arises. I now sleep soundly or at least I’ve no worries as far as GDPR compliance is concerned".
