Duncan and Todd Ellon reopening
Scottish optical group Duncan and Todd has confirmed the reopening of its Ellon, Aberdeenshire practice following a refurbishment to better meet patient demand.

As well as introducing additional optical and audiology testing rooms, the branch has undergone a practice refit.

The additional rooms, which include a sound-proof hearing screening room, have enabled the practice to reduce waiting times by 40%.

Employing 11 staff, the practice has welcomed full-time audiologist David Brown.

Speaking about the introduction of audiology, practice manager and dispenser of the Ellon branch, Nicola Stewart, said: “Audiology is an important health service that has been recognised by Duncan and Todd.

“In recent years we have seen the stigma of hearing loss reduced, alongside advances in technology that mean people who are using hearing aids can pair this with their own electronic devices. More and more people are conscious of taking control of their own personal healthcare and we are happy to support this increasing trend.”

Duncan and Todd recently became the largest Scottish optical group following the acquisition of nine Black & Lizars practices.
