In April this year, the Optical Assistant team of Edmonds & Slatter Opticians along with two of the partners, Tim Cole and Saagar Hirani, attended the prestigious 2015 Optician Awards in Birmingham.
The independent opticians, with practices in Blaby, Glenfield and Lutterworth had been nominated in the category “Optical Assistant Team of the Year”, and proceeded to win the coveted title that night.
Partner Tim Cole said “The category reflects the importance of the reception and support staff in our practices. You cannot run a successful practice with Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians alone. It shows outstanding teamwork, customer service and the ability to make all our patients feel welcome and cared for.”
Edmonds and Slatter have also just confirmed their partnership with the Leicester Riders basketball team will continue for the 2015/2016 season. Ian Davidson, commercial manager for The Riders said “Edmonds Slatter are the Official Opticians for the Leicester Riders and the quality of Optical Care given to the Players has been second to none and helped with the recent success of the Club.” He continued “We welcome staff from Edmonds Slatter to our fixtures and believe that our partnership has genuine benefits for both parties. We look forward to working with Edmonds and Slatter in the 2015/2016 season”
Edmonds and Slatter Opticians have also recently received news that they are finalists in this year’s Association of Optometry Awards recognising much of the charitable fundraising work they participate in all year round. This could make them double-award winners before the year is out!
