LOCSU publishes revised LOC Model Constitution

25 January 2017

NHS England has approved a revised LOC Model Constitution proposed by LOCSU on behalf of ABDO, AOP and FODO.

The new constitution reflects improvements suggested by LOCs through a consultation exercise conducted by LOCSU in early 2016.

The changes include election of officers at the first committee meeting rather than at the AGM itself and a recommendation that co-opted committee members should include at least one locally practising Dispensing Optician.

The newly-published constitution also states that all LOCs should establish a website where contractors and performers can obtain information.

The Memorandum of Understanding between the LOC and Primary Eyecare Company has been included under a new section in the constitution called “LOC Provider Company”. This section should be deleted if there is no PE Company in place.

Adoption of the revised LOC Model Constitution LOCs should be included as an agenda item at all 2017 LOC AGMs.  

The LOC Model Constitution can be found via this link to the LOCSU website.
