Monthly Meeting with Health and Social Care Board

Another useful meeting today when ONI Council Members Jill Campbell and William Stockdale met with Raymond Curran (Head of Ophthalmic Services, Directorate of Integrated Care), Margaret McMullan and Fiona North.

Great to hear of plans to role out the SPEARS initiative to a group of practices in the Southern Region.
