Change is theme for NOC 2018

4 November 2018

The theme for this year’s NOC is “change”. Guest speaker Giles Duley, a former celebrity fashion turned war photographer who lost both legs and one arm, will explain what businesses can learn from his unique and highly personal story of change. Follow the link for Giles’ full profile.

Our keynote policy speaker at the conference will be Dr Jo Bayley, who is Clinical Advisor of the System Transformation Group at NHS England. Jo will be giving an overview of how the move towards Integrated Care Systems in the NHS will change commissioning models.
In the afternoon session, her NHS colleague Richard Everitt, Programme Manager for Dental and Optical Commissioning, will update LOC delegates on priority projects for the sector, notably connecting optical practices to the NHS IT system.
Bookings and programme details can be found here on the AOP website. LOCs are reminded to book quickly as there is limited accommodation on the Wednesday night (14 November).
