Arnold was the first practice started by Tom Bond, and moved into its present modern premises in 1982.
It is situated on High Street, next door to the dentists, and opposite the health centre. Parking is available behind the practice, or in various car parks nearby.
There are three fully equipped consulting rooms, one downstairs, with an additional room for contact lens fitting and visual field examination. There is a large separate waiting room upstairs with toys available for children, and a reception/dispensing area downstairs with a wide selection of frames.
The practice is wheelchair accessible via a ramp, and patients wishing to be seen in the downstairs room to avoid the stairs can request this when booking appointments.
Liz Whitmore is the practice manager.
Mark Swaby is the dispensing optician based permanently at Arnold. He has been with the partnership for 23 years. He is extremely experienced and also has a special interest in glazing spectacles.
Reception staff include Tracey, Janice and Deb. They are trained in spectacle adjustment and fitting, contact lens instruction and practice administration.
