Leightons Wokingham was the first branch to become a franchise of Leightons Opticians & Hearing Care, established by the now Branch Manager Timothy Barrett in 1996. The branch has a calm and welcoming atmosphere with friendly, experienced staff – who were keen to welcome Phillipa to the team!
Phillipa graduated from the University of Cape Town with a degree in Audiology before moving to the UK in 2015 to join the NHS. During her time with the NHS, Phillipa developed her clinical skills and learnt to adopt a quick-thinking approach to more complex patient cases. Phillipa gave us her thoughts on joining Leightons:
“I believe that personalised care is the best way to really look after a patient. Having the time to spend with a patient is critical: it gives me the chance to find the perfect hearing aid technology for an individual, as well as ensuring that the patient’s aftercare is comprehensive. Joining Leightons gives me the opportunity to do this where I haven’t been able to before. I also have access to an amazingly wide variety of hearing technologies and accessories that can be tailored to the patient’s specific needs.”
Phillipa offers an extensive range of expert hearing care services, including free hearing assessments, tinnitus consultations, ear wax removal and custom hearing protection, as well as the latest hearing aid technology. We are delighted to have gained Philippa as wonderful new team member. We are confident that the blend of Phillipa’s NHS background and new knowledge, with the team’s experience and expertise will make a successful combination and help the branch to continue to excel in providing quality expert care. From everyone at Leightons Opticians & Hearing Care, we look forward to having Phillipa as a member of our Leightons family!
