A new Boots Opticians practice has been opened in Addlestone, Surrey due to a financial package from NatWest.

Optometrist Davin Oudit used the £240,000 funding to buy the practice, as well as to fit the premises with state of the art optometry and IT equipment.

Oudit said: ‘I am extremely grateful for the finance package from NatWest, which has enabled me to embark on an exciting new chapter and open my own Boots Opticians franchise here in Addlestone, Surrey. I have worked within the Boots brand for many years and saw first-hand the benefits and opportunities which come from being a franchisee with the retailer. It’s now the perfect time to open my own store, and I look forward to welcoming patients to the new practice in the months ahead.’

Relationship manager at NatWest Jonathan Fordham added: ‘Under Davin’s leadership, I’m confident the franchise will be a great success.’
