NHS England Special School Eyecare Programme to feature at NOC

15 October 2019

Following a very well-received presentation at Vision UK’s Forward View conference, Richard Everitt, Programme Manager for Optical Services Commissioning for NHS England and NHS Improvement, has joined the speaker line-up for NOC on 14th November. Richard will share NHS plans to transform eyecare services for people with learning disabilities and autism.


Richard has spent the majority of his career in the private sector, working for a variety of blue-chip companies. He first moved into the public sector in 2013 when he joined Herefordshire CCG as a programme manager, working on a transformation programme to modify and improve services at Wye Valley Trust.

This paved the way to his current position with NHS England as a Programme Manager within the central primary care commissioning operations team, taking a lead for the optometry sector.

Richard’s workstreams include responsibility for improving quality and outcomes for optometry practices through IT connectivity, transforming commissioning services, and setting the strategic direction for enhanced services; prioritising people with learning disabilities and autism.

Richard Whittington, LOCSU COO said “we are absolutely delighted that Richard completes our speaker line-up for NOC 2019.  His presentation will highlight the efforts being made to improve outcomes for some of the most vulnerable people in our society”
