Welcome to King and Wood Opticians Patients

28 December 2016

We offer our very best wishes for Carole Thorpe on her retirement and extend a warm welcome to King and Wood patients transferring to Keyes Eyecare.

On the 31st December, King and Wood Opticians will close after 70 years of trading. The Gosforth High Street practice is closing due to Carole Thorpe's retirement after 38 years at King and Wood.

If you have been a patient of King and Wood, we will contact you when your next examination is due. Staff from both practices have been working very closely together over the last six months, so the transfer should be smooth and we are well prepared for continuity of your care, but if you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Many patients from King and Wood have already called in to meet us, so please call by when you are passing.


We look forward to meeting you!
