News in brief

National Autistic Society

The National Autistic Society has published guidance for eye care professionals about treating patients with autism, written by eye care professionals who work with individuals on the autism spectrum.

The guidance can be found on their website.

Council vacancies

Later this month, we will be looking to recruit two new registrants to our Council.
Joining our Council gives you a very positive way to influence the direction of the GOC and the optical sector more widely.

Registrant survey

Many thanks to over 4,000 of you who replied to our recent registrants’ survey. We’re currently analysing the results – look out for details in our next eBulletin.

GOC on the road

In the coming weeks we’ll be attending the National Optical Conference on 10 and 11 November, the AOP Student Conference on 26 and 27 November and the Scottish Government’s annual regulation event on 31 October. If you’re at any of those events then come and say hello!
