STUDY DAY/CET EVENTS 2017

As with last year, the location and timings of our CET events will vary and we will endeavour to let you know dates, times, and locations early in the new year.  The new LOC Company (Enhanced Eyecare Services C.I.C.) will be running the events on behalf of the LOC.  Also listed will be the ACES Peer Review details.  Please remember that you will need to attend at least one of these this year to remain accredited.

Somerset LOC has traditionally put on 4 half day "study days" per year with the aim of allowing all Somerset optometrists to gain the points they need for the year. We recently surveyed everyone and as a result are trying a few different formats.  Details of future events can be found below. You should contact Alison Hillier at alison@jclconsulting.co.uk if you wish to attend or with any queries about CET points.
