Seasons greetings from all at the NRC

As we come to the end of another busy year, I would like to thank all  students, members and visitors for adhering to the new way the NRC has been set up and run. MY thanks also go to Molly and Rebecca for their hard work and support.

We have had an incredibly long exam period at the NRC but equally a successful one, even examining over four floors of the building for the first time ever to provide theory exams, dispensing practical and contact lens practical all safely in one place. Logistically this has been extremely challenging but it has been quite an achievement to plan and accomplish this safely while providing all attendees with a safe and secure venue so education and optical qualifications can continue.

We have seen a large uptake in the return to face to face meetings with events for LADR, Specsavers Hearcare, Coopervision, RcOphth, WOPEC, LOCSU and also our sponsors Essilor for their experts academy. Thank you to all our supporters for your continued support and we hope you continue to use our elite facilities. And for those who are still to return to face to face at the NRC we will be here to assist in your event planning when you do feel ready to do so.

We are very much looking forward to 2022 and all that’s left is to have a fantastic Christmas and New Year and we’ll hopefully see you soon.

With best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season.

Mat Stringer, NRC Operations Manager
