Virtual pathways

Non-registrant staff collecting patient data as part of virtual care should be trained to raise any concerns about the quality or content of the data with the initiating optometrists, or other appropriate clinician, as soon as possible.
Virtual pathways being followed by non-registrant staff should always follow evidence-based clinical protocols. It is the responsibility of the initiating optometrist to ensure that this is always the case, as you have ultimate responsibility for the patient and their care.
Virtual pathways must not be used for conducting an eye examination or sight test.
