CHEC (Community Health and Eyecare) has announced a collaboration with Scope Eyecare that will see several continuing professional development (CPD) events for optometrists.
The collaboration will see two CPD workshops, with the first to be held on 5 October.
It is hoped that the session will enable attendees to learn more about the collaboration and also gain industry insight and training.
The workshop will be held online through Zoom, running from 7-8pm. A registration link is available here.
A second joint-CPD event has been planned for 29 November.
Jon Dore, chief operating officer of CHEC, said: “This collaboration with Scope Eyecare allows both organisations to share expertise and support community optometrists with their ongoing educational development.”
Dore suggested the workshops will be helpful for optometrists’ day-to-day work.
“We are excited to see this partnership flourish as we plan further joint events,” Dore said.
The collaboration forms part of a continued expansion for CHEC, with a new site due to open in Accrington this November.
Tom Freyne, managing director at Scope, said: “We are proud to collaborate on quality education events with CHEC.”
Remarking that both healthcare companies have a strong focus on the education of optometrists and healthcare professionals, Freyne said that this makes for a “strong partnership.”
