Optometry Wales have recently worked with Welsh Government, Welsh Optometric Committee and WOPEC to produce an updated version of the EHEW Manual. To access the new manual and the accompanying correspondence please see below links:
We negotiate on behalf of the profession and lobby Welsh Government to ensure that the Sight Test Fees are constantly reviewed, along with the CET allowance for the profession. We also ensure that national enhanced service fees and services continue to reflect the skills and expertise of the profession.
We also issue regular information and advice to those on our mailing list on key risks facing the profession, information and advice on any insurance or risk management issue, a complimentary IT security audit, complimentary business continuity health check including key people risk identification, and a complimentary health and safety audit. Please note, we do not offer professional indemnity insurance to members’. See more about OW Insurance Services.
OW is funded from contributions from the ROCs (as below), and from contributions from the UK optical bodies as above. Our key working partners are Welsh Government, the Welsh Optometry Postgraduate Education Centre, NHS Wales, the voluntary sector and the Welsh Optometric Committee (WOC). Working in partnership with all of these organisations and bodies we are committed to excellence in eye care. To join our mailing list please email firstname.lastname@example.org
