UK Vision Strategy survey on Joint Strategic Needs Assessments

LOCSU has recently written to every LOC Chairman (secretaries and administrators were copied in) to request that they complete a survey on behalf of their LOC.  The survey will be used to give information to UK Vision Strategy as it maps whether Joint Strategic Needs Assessments reflect eye health and avoidable sight loss issues.  Thank you to everyone who has completed their form already. 

Please could those that have not yet responded be reminded that all responses must be submitted online by the end of Thursday 6th December

If you are a Chairman and require the link to be resent please email

Performers List Consultation 

In the recently issued Hot Brief 18, we mentioned that some LOCs have asked whether they should respond to the Department of Health’s consultation on Performers List Application.  This consultation proposes that that in future, there is one national list of general practice doctors, dentists and ophthalmic practitioners approved to provide NHS primary care services. 

We want to remind you that Optical Confederation and LOCSU is currently preparing a response to this consultation, if you would like your comments to be included, please email them to  by Monday 10th December 2012.
