Dr Keyur Patel, right, with other event organisers
Dr Keyur Patel, clinical director at Tompkins, Knight & Son Optometrists in Northampton, organised an event in London on February 3 for 100 independent prescribers to discuss treatment pathways for a variety of conditions.
Patel said: ‘I wanted to create a platform that brings independent prescribers together so we can all benefit from each other’s experience, share ideas and ensure we are all acting in a joined-up way that ensures the best treatment for our patients.
‘The emphasis was on learning but in a relaxed and welcoming environment. It was informal but educational and the feedback has been really encouraging.’
