General Optical Council recruiting for medical practitioners to committees

30 November 2017

The General Optical Council (GOC) is seeking to appoint one registered medical practitioner for each of their companies, education, standards and investigation committees. For these roles, the applicant must be registered with the GMC to be eligible to apply. Applicants could be an ophthalmologist or a doctor working in a different area with an understanding of primary and/or secondary care services for patients with optical needs; and be able to demonstrate effective communication skills and have the ability to provide objective advice and develop effective relationships. This is a great opportunity for personal development.

It is essential for public protection and confidence in the professions that GOC has access to a wide range of expertise on our committees. Each committee plays a vital role in enhancing and informing its work and decisions. The work is challenging, varied and you will be able to learn from the experience of your committee colleagues as well as sharing your own.

Interviews will be held in the GOC London office on 7 February 2018 for the Investigation committee and 13 and 14 February 2018 for the Education, Standards and Companies committees. For further details about the role and how to apply, please email or visit:
