    Marc spent 18 months working alongside Eye Casualty as an Independent Prescriber during the Covid-19 Pandemic, seeing Emergency appointments in the practice. As this has been so successful, the scheme will continue and hopefully be rolled out across Wales.

    Marc has now started a role as a Specialist Optometrist at UHW which will allow him to gain further experience in managing eye disease. He spends as much time as possible providing optometric Eye Care to Osmond Drake patients.

    In his spare time, Marc relaxes by spending time on the water in West Wales with friends and family.
