Ashby Street Optometry Clinics Project
The Ashby Street Optometry Clinics Project began in early January 2015, and completed on time in July 2015.
The project formed a key element in the consolidation of the School of Health Sciences at Northampton Square which was formerly spaced across several sites.
This new facility now:
- Centralises public optometry clinics, alongside research areas and teaching space in a single facility which allow students to access shared resources
- Facilitates greater inter-disciplinary interaction to reflect 'real life' health care provision
- Facilitates an increase in the number of sight test clinics and incorporate private clinics
- Provides a space for final year Optometry students to dispense contact lenses and spectacles to individuals with visual impairments.
