Brief communication from Optometry Scotland

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for your many questions and observations over the last few days since our temporary new ways of working were announced by the Scottish Government.

We’re working hard behind the scenes with professional bodies, independents, multiples, optometric advisors and SGHD colleagues to draw up a list of common FAQs to help you navigate our new landscape.  We will share these with you shortly.

In the meantime, we continue our role as community eyecare specialists as per the request from SGHD;

“community eye care will continue to support other primary and secondary care colleagues by managing persons requiring emergency and essential eyecare”

I know that this a role you will embrace and deliver professionally under the current Covid-19 regime.

More information will be available soon.

Kind regards

Your Optometry Scotland team.
