Inspiring Business by Sharing Success


Local Derby optician, Richard Petrie Optometrists, has been named a finalist in the Independent Practice category of the 2018 Optician Awards. It is the second time that the independent practice in Littleover has been shortlisted for a national award in a few months.

Richard Petrie Optometrists is the only East-Midlands based practice in the running for the national award, with tough competition from independent practices in Warwick, Maidstone and London.

Davina Dosanjh, Owner and Optometrist at the Littleover-based practice says:

“We are thrilled to be in the running for an Optician Award. It’s a real credit to our team’s hard work that makes our practice a friendly and helpful place for patients to visit.”

With independent retailing enjoying a resurgence in Derby as well as across the UK, this award category seeks to credit the independent eyecare practices that offer better product choice and a more personalised service for their patients.

Davina adds:

“These award nominations could not come at a better time for us as 2018 marks the practice’s 40th anniversary too. What a year it’s shaping up to be!”

The Optician Awards’ gala dinner and awards ceremony will be held on Saturday 14 April at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, NEC, as part of Optrafair a trade event for the optical sector.
