In reply to your comment about why this website is focused solely on locum optometrists.
This website was founded by locum optometrists so that they could discuss ideas and issues that affect them on a day to day basis.
We believe that some of the issues will overlap with employed staff but it is important for us to stay focussed on issues affecting us locums directly. I agree it would be helpful for all optometrist to unite but that is out of the scope this website at present. Employed optometrists are under contractual agreement which dictate the terms in which they work. These are different for different companies. With limited staff and resources there is only so much we can cater for.
