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.
