Skills for Enhanced Services workshops

Sunday 25th September, 2016 – London (CET approval pending)

Venue: Specsavers London Wall Salisbury House, 150-151 London Wall,

London EC2M 5QD

 

With opportunities of enhanced eye care in London, optometrists will need to be accredited using the WOPEC framework if they want to deliver the full spectrum of eyecare services that may become available.

CET workshops have now been organised to help optometrists prepare for the MECS and Glaucoma OSCEs that form part of the Level 2 WOPEC accreditations.

Workshops Include:

Goldmann tonometry, Van Herick assessment, Goldmann calibration, Optic disc & general assessment with Volk

These are funded by Specsavers but open to all optometrists, wherever you work. They are run by experienced WOPEC assessors and are free of charge.

If you are an optometrist who would like more support and guidance before sitting your OSCE or to brush up your skills, book your place now.

Workshops will run at 9.30am, 11am, 2pm, and 3.30pm and you are welcome to stay longer to practice if you like.

Book your place before Monday 19th September by emailing Rakesh Kapoor on rakesh.kapoor@specsavers.com.

Advance booking essential to ensure enough facilitators are available for your chosen time but places are limited.

 

Please feel free to email if you have further questions to rakesh.kapoor@specsavers.com


LETTER FOR ALL THE OPTICIANS IN THE TRI-BOROUGH OFF: Kensington Chelsea Westminster Hammersmith & Fulham

Dear Contractor,

 

We are your local optical committee. We work for you and are paid from the NHS sight tests that your practice carries out. The money is deducted from the payment you receive from the NHS for your GOS1 submissions.

We have been working hard to be part of new ophthalmic services going forward. The rest of the country is way ahead of us. We teamed up with the Imperial trust last year and won a contract to deliver ophthalmic services in the community. Namely: Cataract direct referral, Glaucoma referral refinement and Minor eye conditions.

All contractors and practitioners have the right to participate in these services and will be paid for carrying them out for the NHS. You will be paid extra on top of the NHS sight test fee of £21.31 in order to deliver these services. How much exactly is unclear at this stage, however we hope to secure payments of £50.00 for each of these services. All the professional bodies are behind this initiative and over the years they have done what they can, in their own way, to see that our profession develops in this way. We urge you to get involved.

The first step is to get your accreditation or for your optometrists to become accredited with WOPEC, call Sam on 07956 366401 or email him at azsam1@hotmail.com.uk for your codes. Alternatively contact the secretary at secretary@kcwloc.com

We have set aside funds as a committee and will pay for the second part of your accreditation which involves a practical session off the MECS. This second part (MECS) will be held at venue/location: Specsavers Opticians Practice, 173 Edgware Road,           London W2 2HR on Wednesday 12th October 2016 for a 6pm start.

This kind of training is provided by the college and other providers for around £150 per person. The committee will cover this cost for you to complete and achieve your accreditation. Once again contact Sam on 07956 366401 or email him at azsam1@hotmail.com.uk to book for your place. Alternatively contact the secretary at secretary@kcwloc.com for further details.

If you do not become accredited you cannot provide the service, accreditation is open to ALL practitioners who operate in the tri-borough area and accreditation is FREE.

 

Thank you and we look forward to you attending our meetings all contractors and performers are welcome.

 

 

Kind regards,

Kensington, Chelsea, Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham

Local Optical Committee.
