Helpful feedback about The Outside Clinic (visiting opticians)

THE OUTSIDE CLINIC – OPTICIANS

We’ve just had this very helpful bit of feedback about The Outside Clinic, who advertise occasionally in our ME Essential magazine. They’re opticians who visit people in their own homes:

As I am more or less housebound with ME, getting out for things like the Opticians is difficult, however a friend of mine, told me about Outside Clinic, I called them, to see if I qualified, and this week, they came to see me. You need to be housebound with ME to have them come, but they effectively bring their opticians equipment with them.

I had a really nice lady, who understands ME, allowed me to have rest breaks when required.

The cost is the same, as if you go to the optician, depending on what benefits you receive, and if you do have to have your glasses changed, they will bring them to you.

Anyway, I thought, you might like to pass this onto your members, so others can benefit from them, their contact number is 0800 85 44 77.
