Staff Testimonials

Some Optometrists who joined us recently had the following to share:

Having stayed with one company for nearly 20 years, it was time for a change post-pandemic. It feels great to be part of a team where everyone seems to enjoy their job. Practice staff are well trained and supportive, and management are flexible and well organised with excellent support from HR and IT, and regular internal CPD events are always on offer. H&S do this whilst still putting the patient first.

I'm approaching a year of work at Haine and Smith and I am so pleased I made the decision to try a new multiple. I have so much more job satisfaction taking the appropriate time getting to know my patients and being able to give that 'extra' customer service that people expect. The rest of the staff are great too - knowledgeable in their field, friendly and helpful! There's plenty of CPD training opportunities too! I look forward to many years more with Haine and Smith!
