Ministerial Announcement and Coronavirus Update 7th October 2020

Following today’s announcement on further Covid-19 countermeasures, we are glad to confirm that Community Eyecare services will continue uninterrupted as part of the wider NHS remobilisation of Primary Care services in Scotland.

It will be important for all practices to continue to remind patients that Community Eyecare practices are operating with the use of NHS approved PPE, fully compliant with NHS infection control procedures and remain a safe environment for the provision of all primary eyecare services.

We wish members and colleagues the very best of health and wellbeing during these demanding and uncertain times.  We are continuing to have ongoing positive consultations with the Scottish Government Community Eyecare Team as we support our highly valued Community Eyecare services throughout the pandemic.

Thank you for your ongoing feedback and invaluable support.

With best regards,

OS Executive
