Being the boss: Bradford Optometry graduate, Dan Varcoe 2013, profiled by Association of Optometrists

After graduating from the University of Bradford in 2013, Dan Varcoe headed to Jersey for what he labels a "unique" pre-reg period. Based on an island with a population estimated at less than 100,000, he completed his pre-reg year at independent practice Alan Duchemin Opticians. While Dan was pleased that he made the move and experienced something new, he admitted that because there is no NHS in Jersey, he found that patients generally "looked after themselves better," adding: "I didn't experience the pathology that I may have done in a different environment."
