Independent Prescribing

BIOS believes that full independent prescribing responsibilities are needed to maximise the impact of orthoptists working in advanced roles throughout ophthalmology. This has the potential to provide more timely care for patients as well as enabling orthoptists to better support overstretched eye heath services.

We are currently working alongside other professional bodies to call on the government to extend independent prescribing.
