Bolton Optometric Committee represents all Optometrists who practice in Bolton PCT.
The Committee works with the PCT's on all issues relating to NHS Optometric services in the area including GOS sight tests, GOS regulations and terms of service, Clinical Governance and shared care.
We have an AGM around May every year and meet on average 6 times per year.
As a committee we are dedicated to promoting Optometrists skills and wish to see many Optometrists in our area performing enhanced services for the benefit of the public in Bolton.
Our aim is to influence and negotiate with practice based commissioners to commission services from Optometrists in many areas of ophthalmic care. We believe we are in an excellent position to enable local PCT's to deliver Lord Darzi's recommendations in respect to eyecare.
