The Outside Clinic is the UK’s leading and longest established home-visiting Optician and hearing specialist. We are a privately owned company with our Head Office based in Swindon, Wiltshire. We have been privileged to provide ‘at home’ sight and hearing care for our senior citizens within their own communities for over 25 years.

Originally founded in 1987 by a small team of Opticians, we have now grown into an organisation approaching 300 dedicated health care professionals and support personnel, based at our head office in Swindon, and all over England, Scotland and Wales.

We work in the community, visiting patients in their own homes.

Following numerous requests from our patients, in 2009 we introduced our ‘at home’ hearing services, this is proving to be a very welcome addition to our optical home visiting services.
