Optometry Scotland appointed optometrist Julie Mosgrove as the new chair at its recent AGM after serving as vice-chair for three years.

‘We have emerged from a challenging period in a strong position and as we look forward, we are ready to help our members navigate the new changes that are coming for the profession, from changes to referral pathways, to the future of optometric education. We continue to remain agile and review our own ways of working so we can provide the best possible support and maximise every opportunity,’ Mosgrove said.

Mosgrove, who also works as retail director for the Duncan & Todd group, succeeded David Quigley as chair.
