Urgent Call to stand for Northern Ireland Ophthalmic Committee

Many of the places on the Northern Ireland Ophthalmic Committee are up for reappointment.  One of those places is reserved for a representative from companies.


This has been filled excellently in recent years by Stephen McCrory of Boots but Stephen is regrettably standing down.


The appointment is for 4 years with 4 meetings a year and, although unremunerated, expenses are paid.


There are also four regional seats up for appointment and, again, we would encourage FODO optometrists and DOs to put themselves forward and companies and employers to support them.


These are excellent opportunities to shape the future of eye care in Northern Ireland. We have to be in it to win it.
