NOC 2013

27 September 2013

Don't forget to book your place for the National Optical Conference which takes place on 7 and 8 November 2013.  Spaces are going fast for this year's event, focused on the 'new NHS - six months in' and speakers confirmed include:

  • Dr David Geddes, Head of Primary Care Commissioning at NHS England
  • Dr Waqaar Shah, the Royal College of General Practitioners Eye Health representative
  • Professor Harminder Dua, President at the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and Chair of the Clinical Council for Eye Health Commissioning 
As well as the chance to hear from expert speakers, there is also the opportunity to participate in smaller parallel sessions on topics ranging from lessons learnt from early implementers of the LOC Company model to quick fire clinical audit.  Delegates will also be able to attend regional networking groups to discuss some of the issues that most affect them. 
As in previous years, every LOC gets one free delegate place at the NOC funded by LOCSU, and we have recently written to LOCs who have not yet booked their free place to remind them of this.  All LOCs are encouraged to send as many delegates as possible to the conference so that an increasing number of people working in the sector benefit from the only event in the optical calendar focused on community eye health. 
Delegates will be able to celebrate the success of colleagues across the sector at the AOP awards (black tie dinner) which is held on Thursday, 7 November.  
NOC 2013 is sponsored this year by Moorfields Pharmaceuticals and Topcon.
