With over 80% of UK practising optometrists as members, we are the leading provider of medical malpractice insurance for optometrists in the UK and our in-house legal team vigorously defends the reputation and livelihood of our members.
We provide high quality services and benefits to enable our members to fulfil their professional roles.
The optical profession in the UK is changing rapidly and we work on behalf of our members to help shape the sector and positively affect their working lives.
