Book your appointment
Please book an appointment before visiting this practice. CLICK HERE to book.
As restrictions change, all our practices continue to operate on an “appointment only” basis. We are a Primary Healthcare provider and must remain in line with NHS regulations, so all our existing safety measures remain in place. These include regular sanitising of the practice, all staff wearing full PPE and all patients are expected to wear a face covering for the duration of their visit. We recognise that this may not be the case elsewhere, but we must prioritise safety and ensure the best protection for all our patients and staff. If you are exempt, then please let us know ahead of your appointment so that we can make suitable arrangements to look after you. If you forget to bring a face covering, one can be provided for you. Rest assured, we look forward to the day when we can smile at one another with more than just our eyes!
Raxworthy Visioncare was founded in Christchurch in 1950, and has been at its current location on Bargates since 1955. You’ll find the practice housed in a beautiful Victorian building that was originally erected for the Mayor of Christchurch, putting Raxworthy Visioncare at the heart of local history. The practice became part of the Leightons family in January 2020, but with the same well-loved team continuing to deliver expert eye and hearing care to their community.
How we're keeping you safe
At Leightons we want to reassure you that when you visit us in practice, your safety is our number one priority. We want you to be confident in the actions we have taken to provide you a safe and sanitised experience.
