Optometry news and updates - The view from the chair - Practitioner Stories
Optometry Today visits optometry practices in Glasgow and London for an on-the-ground view of life in practice.
Inside the Mount Florida branch of Munro Optometrists, Frank Munro takes my coat and offers me a cup of tea. There is a Christmas tree nestled in the corner with blue baubles the same colour as the shopfront.
Down the road, past posters that read ‘People make Glasgow,’ a notice in the window of J Lupton Family Butcher gently reminds pedestrians to order their turkey.
Munro tells me that during staff training he encourages new recruits to treat everyone who comes through the practice like a member of their family.
“Never walk past anyone – say hello to them,” Munro shares.
“Show some appreciation for the people who are in the building and you will never go far wrong,” he says.
