Private ophthalmic clinic OCL Vision has appointed Alby Wakeling as head of operations, as well as six additional hires across the clinic’s nursing, operations and finance teams.

These appointments are the result of surging patient demand, which saw a 50% increase in patient admissions between January and June 2021.


Wakeling has almost two decades worth of experience at the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, where he was most recently general manager of ophthalmology.

Commenting on the new appointments, Juliet Hicks, chief operating officer at OCL Vision, said: ‘We’re delighted to welcome Alby, who has an exceptional CV as a senior healthcare manager for the NHS, along with six other professionals, to our dedicated team as we continue to grow.’
