Welcome to eBulletin

Dear registrant

Welcome to the December 2016 edition of eBulletin.

In this last issue of the year, we give you a closer look at some of our engagement initiatives that will shape our work in 2017 and beyond.

The first results from our 2016 registrant survey are now available. In this issue, we reveal what you think about the future of optics and NHS plans for opticians to provide enhanced eye care services in the community.

This week we will publish a call for evidence for our Education Strategic Review. This will give all stakeholders the chance to have their say on how optical education should develop to prepare students for the roles of the future.

We also recently published our draft Strategic Plan for the period 2017-20. The plan is currently open for consultation until 23 January 2017. As registrants, your views on our plans for the next three years are vital, so please tell us what you think.

We have refined our new registrant guidance on the duty of candour following a period of consultation with stakeholders. The guidance was agreed by Council at their meeting in November and will be published in January.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Samantha Peters
Chief Executive and Registrar
