Gillian to represent UK at the Olympics

Posted on 09th March 2012

Sort of…

 

Eighteen months ago over a quarter of a million people applied to be volunteers at the London 2012 Olympics. The numbers were whittled down over a course of interviews and in December Gillian was delighted to accept a post as optometrist for the games.

Her duties will involve working as part of a team of health professionals in the polyclinic at the heart Olympic village. She will provide acute eye and contact lens care to the athletes, their teams and spectators and general eye exams to those from developing countries who may not have access to health care at home.

Her love of all things sporty, her expertise in contact lenses, and in volunteer optometry abroad make her the ideal choice. She’s hoping they might even give her a bit of time off to watch an event or two. She’ll keep us updated here as things develop.
