Toukley NSW Practice Joins George & Matilda

Mr and Ms Wand both studied at UNSW, then moved to work in the United Kingdom before settling back in Toukley, on the Central Coast of NSW in 1993.

At that time they acquired a practice that had been established in 1978.

With over 36 years of industry experience each, George and Matilda say the couple demonstrates the organisation’s “key values by putting patients first every single day and connecting with local GPs and ophthalmologists to ensure continued joint patient care for the Toukley community”.

Having formed trusted long term, multi-generational relationships, “they know their patients, going over and above for them time and time again.”

Mr Wand said joining George & Matilda Eyecare was part of their exit strategy.

“Growing the practice has been exactly like raising a child. So, we are keen for our patients to continue to be looked after long into the future. We are excited that G&M will make this happen. We would have hated to simply close our doors and walk away when we decided to retire. Also, G&M geographically was growing in our area and that appealed to us as we know that we can be supported and helped by other members in the group and vice versa.”

“We like that G&M have taken seven years to refine their model. Then, with confidence, move into expansion. We can see already that they know a lot more about running a business than we do. We are looking forward to seeing our practice being invigorated by the change. We have found everyone easy to deal with. Any questions or concerns have always been addressed with transparency and ease.

“We’ve had help and support getting the financials and information needed regarding the sale of the business. There’s been no pressure and we’ve worked at a pace which suited us to get where we needed to be to make our final decision.”

“Anyone in our position will know that it is increasingly more complex to market and run a business. The best way to grow is to bring people who have tried and tested systems and who have access to the latest data and technology. After 30 years, Robyn was ready to retire. So, it was better to handover the management side so I could concentrate best on being the clinician without any worry,” Mr Wand added.
