Our Team, Our Practice and Our Philosophy.
Our philosophy at Richard Petrie is about care.
Care for our community, who receive a fantastic service and have access to a wonderful array of products to suit their style.
Care for our team, who work tirelessly to make the practice run smoothly, and who benefit from an array of benefits including mindfulness training, team days out and pension contribution scheme.
Care for the planet through ethical and sustainable operations that we have chosen to employ. From our contact lens recycling programme and eco-certified frame options to recycling and reusing where we possibly can in our business practices.
The practice wouldn’t be successful without our team of wonderful staff, all of whom are integral to the smooth running of the business. The practice is now run by Davina, who joined as a ‘Saturday Girl’ 20 years ago! Fast forward a few decades and Davina is now at the forefront of Richard Petrie Optometrists and is proudly able to continue evolving the practice as new technologies and consumer demands appear.
At Richard Petrie Optometrists, we strive to create a practice where we can achieve excellence for our patients. We have created a framework of core values and behaviours to how we approach our work.
We are truthful, fair and speak up.
We make sure to keep everyone informed and up to date, making sure to demonstrate collaboration. We treat all people with kindness, respect, without judgement. We want to be a reliable and trustworthy practice so you can put your support in us.
We are committed and motivated to providing the best service.
We give you the time you need and are committed to evolving, innovating and using our knowledge to perform to the highest possible standards. We are professional, knowledgeable and experienced – making sure to give the best recommendations for your needs. We believe everyone is important and are inclusive of diversity and uniqueness!
We continually improve through listening, learning and innovation.
We genuinely care about people and believe everyone deserves exceptional service. We always give you the time you need in a confidential and private environment. We provide the ultimate outstanding eyecare experience by providing quality products and personalised service, going above and beyond what is expected.
