Our Medical Clinic
Whitby & Co. and Fleet Street Clinic
Whitby & Co. – our independent London-based Optometry clinic – works seamlessly with our own multidisciplinary medical practice – the Fleet Street Clinic, on the same premises. This “one-stop shop” approach ensures we can deliver holistic, high-quality care, providing solutions to any medical issues. If any of our patients need input from other disciplines, or require more complex care, we can easily obtain help and advice from our doctors, nurses and other colleagues already on-site.
When you come to Whitby & Co. you will therefore have easy access to our fully resourced medical centre, which includes doctors, nurses, laboratory and diagnostic tests, and our in-house mini pharmacy.
Key health benefits for YOU
How does this work in practice? If you come and see our optometrist with symptoms of an eye infection, for example, one of our doctors may be able to prescribe antibiotics on the spot, which can be dispensed right away from our pharmacy. So at a single visit, you can have a thorough eye examination, accurate diagnosis, and prompt treatment to take away – with fast relief of your symptoms and maximum convenience. This also works the other way around: if you come and see one of our GPs with an eye problem that needs more detailed evaluation, you and they will have full and immediate access to our high-level optical skills and technology.
If you need referral to a specialist, we can arrange this simply and swiftly. We work closely with an extensive referral network, built up over many years.
