Lobbying Cross-Party MP’s and MSPs

Optometry Scotland are always actively engaging with our MSP’s and MP’s to promote the benefits of eye health care.

In the past year, we have met with the Cabinet Secretary for Health, Jeane Freeman, the Convenor of the Health and Sports committee, Lewis MacDonald and his Clerk David Cullmn and Deputy Convenor Emma Harper.

We have also met with the majority of members of the Health and Sports committee Miles Briggs, Alex Cole-Hamilton, David Stewart, Sandra White, Brian Whittle and look forward to meeting new members in the near future.

We are always present at all party conferences and arrange individual meetings with party members to promote community optometry and the ongoing success of General Ophthalmic Services in Scotland.
