Sefton LOC

Sefton Local Optometric Committee (LOC) is the official organisation representing the interests of the Optical Profession, particularly Optometrists within the Sefton area. It provides advice to Sefton Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG's), local Hospitals and Optometrists within the Sefton area.

The LOC has also taken on the role of helping to organise and establish various shared care schemes within the area, such as "The Glaucoma repeat Reading Service." The current direct referral for cataract and is currently under review with input from the Local Eye Health Network, The local CCG's, LOC's local hospital Ophthalmology departments. We hope to redesign and relaunch this in the near future.

Sefton LOC members meet approximately every  8 weeks, depending on the prevailing workload, to discuss matters/plans/legislation that affect Optometry on a Local/National level.Meeting dates
