Free home eye tests with Specsavers Healthcall

11 Apr

Your eye health is important to us but we know that sometimes it can be difficult to get to us without assistance. To make it easier for you to have regular eye tests or to see an optician when you have any concerns about your eye health, our Healthcall opticians will visit you at home.

Our team of ‘mobile opticians’ provide a comprehensive eyecare service to those who cannot get to their local store unaccompanied. Customers can benefit from a free NHS eye test, great offers and high standards of care in the comfort of their own home.

To see if you or a loved one meets the criteria for a home visit please call 0800 198 1132 or request an appointment here.


Are you worried about someone you love, but can’t always be there with them?

Due to collaboration between City Wide Care Alarms (CWCA) and Westfield Health, CWCA are now offering a FREE six week trial of a ‘3rings plug’.

This can help ensure a vulnerable person is safe their home.

A regularly used appliance, e.g. a kettle, is plugged into the 3rings plug and then, when that appliance is used, up to 10 family members can get a message via smartphone app, email, text or automated calls, which assures them that the person is up and active.

Time bands can also be set, e.g. 5am to 9 am or 3pm to 6pm, so that if the appliance isn’t used between these times an alert is sent out instead. The plug uses inbuilt mobile technology so all that is needed is a mobile phone signal.

After the six week free trial, prices are £15.99 per month for a minimum 12 month contract, or £18.99 a month for a ‘pay as you go cancel anytime’ deal.

More information is available at

Anyone interested in having one of these on a six week free trial should contact City Wide Care Alarms on 0114 242 0351.
