Lobbying

Recently, Optometry Scotland representatives have met with MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton and MSP George Adams on separate occasions to discuss the new ‘GOS Works’ report. During these meetings, Nicola and Frank discussed the ongoing success of community optometry and General Ophthalmic Services in Scotland which saved the NHS £71 million last year by retaining patients in the community. Optometry Scotland would like to see some of this saving being directed back into the service.
