The team at Specsavers in Wantage have raised their glasses to fellow member Shruti Patel who passed her final exams to become a fully qualified optometrist.

Shruti (22) joined the store in July 2014, relocating to Wantage, after completing her optometry degree in Cardiff. Over the last 12 months she’s carried out her pre-reg year, before sitting her final exams in October 2015.

‘We’re delighted that Shruti has passed, and of course that she’s staying on here as part of the team,’ said Nicky Rutter, store director. ‘Her professional approach and commitment to providing the very best in eyecare are just what we look for in our staff and it’s great that she’s part of our team.’
