We are pleased to announce that, in June this year, Dr Tony Gibson attained his Diploma in Therapeutics (Independent Prescribing). He is now able to prescribe medications for the treatment of eye-related conditions, which will save patients’ valuable time when seeking resolution of their eye problems.
The diploma has taken some time to complete, having consisted of online training, essays, case records, a two week placement at Sunderland Eye Infirmary and a common final exam in London.
Ellis Leatherbarrow, our managing director and principal optometrist, recently completed his Professional Certificate in Glaucoma from Cardiff University.
With online learning and practical assessments, Ellis passed with flying colours and can now use the affix Prof Cert Glauc to show he has an enhanced knowledge of the common eye disease.
Congratulations Tony & Ellis!
