Specsavers Haverfordwest took the trophy for Multiple Practice of the Year at the Optician Awards 2022 last November, by its strong workplace culture of training and self-development, long-term outlook, and an understanding of its key market.

Specsavers Haverfordwest’s optometrist director, Andy Britton, says: ‘We felt absolutely thrilled to win; we work very hard to develop the team and services. We run a complex practice due to the sheer number of different schemes and services we offer to support patients and the local NHS.

‘This does mean that some of our processes, requirements and pathways are significantly more involved than seen in a practice that is more focused on traditional eye examinations. It was amazing to go up against the other leaders within the profession and to be recognised as experts within our field.’
