As part of the 2018 General Ophthalmic Services (Scotland) Amendment Regulations (GOS, 2018), there is an annual requirement for all optometrists working under GOS in Scotland to undertake a small element of mandatory training, provided by NES.
Specifically, this scoping exercise (survey) aims to:
- Use the profession’s current views and experience to guide the design and delivery of the 2020 GOS mandatory training
- Collect information from the profession and try to find common themes within the topic of capacity and consent within optometric practice
Allow for analysis and publication of the anonymous views of the optometric workforce in Scotland
