About the guidance

We have published new guidance on expanding the scope of practice. An expanded scope of practice enhances and broadens eye care available in all settings and ultimately improve patient outcomes. This new guidance is high level, and sets out eight key domains that clinicians need to address when working beyond their core competency and at their maximum capability. The guidance sets out the principles that will support you when deciding whether a particular procedure or therapeutic activity falls within your scope of practice, or when moving into a new area of practice, to ensure patient safety and robust governance.
