Reference groups

Our reference group members are committed volunteers representing a range of professional and patient experience. They are regularly consulted on College projects and communications, and their opinions, ideas and feedback shape the our work and ensure that we speak for the profession. 

There are currently eight reference groups: 

  • Hospital Optometrists Reference Group
  • Independent Optometrists Reference Group
  • Locum Optometrist Reference Group
  • Newly Qualified Optometrist Reference Group
  • Patient Reference Group
  • Pre-Registration Optometrist Reference Group
  • Student Optometrist Reference Group

Current vacancies are advertised on this website and promoted through enews and other College communications.
