Keith Murphy Opticians in Warwick Road was given the Technology Practice of the Year UK award by comedian Miles Jupp at the Opticians Awards held on Saturday April 9 in Resorts World.

Co-owned by Keith and Helen Murphy, the practice won the award ahead of three other nominees.

The award is given to opticians that ‘can demonstrate an ability to use technology effectively for the patients’ benefit,’ and is assessed by an independent panel of judges.

Scott O’Neill, a dispensing optician at Keith Murphy, said: “We didn’t expect to be nominated, let alone win the award. We were pleasantly surprised.

“It’s just a massive boost for us - we all work really hard and it’s especially nice for us to be rewarded.”

The practice has been based in the town for the last 16 years.
