A founding partner of Fleet Street Clinic, Gillian Whitby trained in optometry in Glasgow and has been GOC registered since 1982.  With over thirty years’ experience of general clinical optometry, Gillian has worked in Fleet Street since 1983 and established her own independent practice Whitby & Co in 1995. She heads up a great optometric team and has built an extensive, wide-ranging referral network.

Highly sought after for her expertise, Gillian offers patients a unique blend of excellent eye care and her friendly, welcoming approach: “listening to patients’ needs is paramount”. She enjoys problem solving and helping patients who have been visually unfulfilled elsewhere. Gillian counts one of her career highlights as testing and looking after one of our former Prime Ministers when he was in office. He is still a client to this day.

Gillian is regularly instructed in optometric legal matters and enjoys being an expert witness. When she is not at work, she is busy travelling with her husband Richard, or spending time with her 3 sons. A keen chef, she spends a lot of time entertaining in the kitchen.
