Dispensing Optician Joanne Benfield celebrated her 20th year with Edmonds & Slatter Opticians this month. She is one of ten members of staff who have been with the Leicestershire Company for 5 years or more.
Joanne joined the team in 1992 and currently manages the Blaby practice.
She is instrumental in buying the majority of frames that are available in practice and patients often comment on the fact she makes such good selections. She is also found quite often sneaking into the practice in her free time to oversee important orders. The effort that Joanne puts into her patient care was reflected in her recent nomination for the national Optician Awards as Dispensing Optician of the year.
Partner, Tim Cole said: ‘Joanne has always got a smile on her face and is one of the reasons why Edmonds And Slatter have such a good reputation for customer service’ Tim went on to say ‘Her commitment and enthusiasm are much appreciated by patients and colleagues alike’ She was surprised with a bouquet of flowers and a gift of jewellery during her working day.
