New Qualification

Huge congratulations to Elizabeth Neville. It has been confirmed this morning that she has passed her Independent Prescribing course. Liz has worked tremendously hard to undertake this qualification on top of her regular work as one of our Optometrists, but all the effort has now paid off.

Congratulations Liz, very well done.
