Stewart Mitchell, Council Member
I work in a small independent practice in the centre of Bradford. The practice is a partnership so I understand the pressures juggling between optometry and running a profitable business. I do specialist contact lens work, Semi-Scleral, RGP and specialist soft contact lenses, but have a keen interest in the clinical role we play, managing and deflecting referrals into secondary care. An important issue is maintaining clinical skills when the financial model we work to fails to address the cost of our professional time.
I’ve really enjoyed being involved with the trialling of primary care support England online. Sadly not in its design, but in its testing.
