Timeline for change set out by regulator

The General Optical Council sets out its strategic plan, timeline for legislative reform and consumer complaints analysis. Simon Jones reports

Proposals for General Optical Council strategy up to 2030 were noted at the second Council meeting of the year on June 28 at the regulator’s Old Bailey offices. 

Between 2025 and 2030, a period where the optometric sector in the UK could see significant regulatory change as a result of the GOC’s call for evidence, the Council said the strategy had the working title of ‘Shaping the Future’ and would replace the current strategy, titled, ‘Fit for the Future.’ 

The Council said it would use the Chartered Management Institute’s strategy development ten-point checklist in the development of its own strategy. This included, understanding its current position and reflection on how it got there, having a clear vision of its corporate identity, strength and weakness analysis and an assessment of the business environment.
