Optical Confederation Guidance

The NHS Choices system for optics was upgraded from September 2011 to include more information about practices, self-editable practice profiles and a new feedback and response facility system for patients. This change brought optics into line with the NHS Choices systems that have already been rolled out for NHS hospitals, GPs, dentists and pharmacists. The system is part of the new world of seeking patient input into the reformed NHS. For further information please refer to the Optical Confederation - Guidance on NHS Choices link below.

Opticians Profiles and feedback on NHS Choices

The second link below is a briefing produced by NHS Choices.  Its purpose is to explain how providers can edit their own NHS Choices profiles, how patient feedback on the site will operate and how providers can respond to those comments on the website.
