Free CPD for General Ophthalmic Services professionals in England: Intraocular lenses national patient safety alert webinar

The NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) is hosting a webinar on NIDEK EyeCee One preloaded and EyeCee One Crystal preloaded intraocular lenses (IOLs). The webinar is aimed at optometrists, dispensing opticians and General Ophthalmic Services (GOS) contractors in England.

The webinar has been developed in response to the recent IOLs patient safety alert, which was issued by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.

The NHSBSA’s clinical team will present a 30-minute webinar where they will guide attendees through the GOS process for patients who are affected by the IOLs safety alert. As part of this, the clinical team will explain the appropriate process to report intraocular pressure and how to accurately submit a GOS form for the service provided.

The webinar is free and worth 0.5 CPD points. It starts at 7pm on Monday 13 February 2023.

GOS professionals must register to attend the webinar as soon as possible through the NHSBSA’s dedicated CPD webpage.
