Welcome to Merton, Sutton & Wandsworth LOC website

Merton, Sutton & Wandsworth LOC

The LOC aims to represent local performers and contractors when negotiating with NHS England and the local CCGs.

The LOC should strive to set up local community optometry services, have good communication with other professionals such as pharmacists, public health officials, local council officials, charities that provide optical services (such as the Pocklington Trust) and the London Eye Health Professional Network.

In addition, the LOC is the first point of call for performers and contractors who may have an issue or query.
