A word from Tom

Tom joined the team over two years ago and started as an optical assistant.

Tom said: ‘I am over the moon to have graduated and passed my Cert 4.

 ‘The team has been a massive support, and I’m really grateful for their help along the way. Any time I had a question, there was always someone willing to help which was very encouraging.’
