Education Strategic Review concepts and principles consultation
 

Following on from our initial Call for Evidence last year, we have now launched a consultation on the concepts and principles that could underpin optical education and training in the future, as part of the next phase of our Education Strategic Review.

The consultation considers a series of ways of helping to ensure future optometrists and dispensing opticians are supported to be safe, confident and competent new practitioners in an optical sector where patient need, service delivery and business models are changing fast.

Fitness to practise acceptance criteria

We are proposing Acceptance Criteria as a case management tool to identify whether to accept a complaint against an individual as an allegation of impaired fitness to practise.

Not all complaints amount to an allegation of impaired fitness to practise, and we need to ensure that we identity FTP allegations so that they can be properly investigated and referred to our Investigation Committee or Case Examiners. If a complaint does not amount to an FTP allegation, it can be closed without action or referred to another organisation for them to consider.
