About Us

Appointments: 01480 453208/458079

Practice Manager: Mrs Tessa Bangs

Administrative Team:
Our fully trained personnel offer a helpful and friendly service and will arrange all appointments, referrals, field of vision testing and retinal photography.

The Opticians are fully qualified and experienced and attend regular courses and seminars to gain further knowledge and qualification to remain on the Optical Council Register.

Dispensing Opticians:
Our qualified Dispensers will help you to choose the right frame and lenses for your prescription and administer fittings and repairs.

The experienced technician in the workshop at our Huntingdon practice can make up some single vision prescriptions in as little as 30 minutes. More complex prescriptions, such as bifocals or varifocals, are glazed in house upon receipt of lenses ordered to your individual prescription. A wide range of repairs can also be carried out while you wait, such as the fitting of new nose pads or screws and the re-edging of your existing lenses into a new frame.


Comments and Complaints:
Gathercole and Ward will at all times endeavour to provide a good service and we are always pleased to receive comments and suggestions from patients.  These may be made personally or in a letter to the Practice Manager.

Primary Care Trust:
We fall under the umbrella of the Cambridgeshire Primary Care Trust. The Priory, Priory Road, St.Ives, PE27 5BB.

Disabled Friendly

Gathercole & Ward Opticians in Huntingdon have a car park that can be accessed via Malthouse close, by Waitrose car park. Patients are welcome to use our car park if there are any spaces, especially the elderly who can access our premises through our back door. But please remember our opening hours, if there are no spaces there are council car parks at the rear. Alternatively, blue badge holders can park on the High Street before 10am and after 4pm.

Disabled Patients:
The consulting rooms are entirely at ground level. We have a removable ramp, which can be used at the front or rear of the practice. Because our frame room is upstairs at our St.Ives and Huntingdon branch, our Dispensers’ will be happy to bring a selection of frames downstairs to try on.
