Dear Colleagues

HSC is continuing to progress contractor and employed optometrist/locum access to HSC email addresses, in common with other FPS service areas.

In this regard HSC is asking if you would be interested in having access to an HSC email address which would allow you NHS access for future involvement in electronic referral and a feedback loop from secondary care.  Each individual email address must be serviced by your National Insurance number.

We would also like guidance as to whether this would create a barrier for any optometrists to access this email.

If this is something that you would be interested in, please email NIOS Secretary in the first instance –

Thank you.
