- Cambridgeshire Local Optometric Committee (LOC) is a statutory body which represents the interests of local optometrists.
- We provide advice and support to optometrists on any matter concerning their NHS contract, on locally agreed enhanced services, developments such as clinical governance and changes in the NHS structure.
- We liase with the NHS Commissioning Board - Local Area Team (LAT) on issues affecting optometry by formulating collective views.
- We help to design, pilot and commission enhanced service pathways.
- The LOC is funded by a statutory levy, which is collected from the monthly payments made to registered optometrists for performing General Ophthalmic Services (GOS) eye examinations.
- We can act as a source of information and advice to anyone with an interest in primary eye care in Cambridgeshire.
- We also provide CET accredited events and peer review for local professionals.
- We are always interested to hear from commissioners of enhanced eye care services.
