The NHS 2015 - Where will you and your Orthoptic Service be?
INFORMATICS AND ORTHOPTICS, SERVICE CHANGES, COSTING & THE WORKFORCE
Managers Forum 041012.pdf
In its 75thyear, the BIOS hosts a day for heads of service and orthoptic managers to review and reflect on where they and their service might be in two year's time.
By keeping up to date and knowing how to use informatics (including telemedicine), by planning proactively for service changes - orthoptics and orthoptists will, we hope, still be around in abundance in 2015.
