An all-female team of partners has opened a new eye health clinic and surgical centre.

Newmedica Shrewsbury brings together operational director Cinty Yarnell and consultant ophthalmologist partners Miss Carmel Noonan and Miss Kaveri Mandal.

They are offering NHS and private treatment for cataract surgery and aftercare, YAG laser treatment, medical retina clinics and general eye surgery, including minor oculoplastics.

Their centre is reducing waiting times for patients for essential eye surgery across Shrewsbury, wider Shropshire and further afield.

The clinic, at Shrewsbury Business Park, was officially opened by the town’s Mayor who was delighted to see the team had installed an electric car charging point.

Councillor Julian Dean was joined in cutting the ribbon by Doug and Dame Mary Perkins, founders of Specsavers.
