BIOS respond on behalf or our members on a wide range of consultations from organisations across the UK, to ensure that we have a voice on matters of importance to the orthoptic profession.

Consultations may be written by members of our Board of Trustees or Council of Experts, by Clinical Advisory Groups, by our Policy Officer or by individual members with a particular expertise. However, we are always looking for members to feed into this process to ensure that our responses are member-led and reflect the views of the profession as a whole.

Current Consultations

If you would like to feed into the above consultation, or to notify us of a policy consultation you think we’ve missed, please email

We often submit joint responses alongside other professional bodies, as part of the Allied Health Professions Federation (AHPF). These responses can be found on the AHPF website, here.
