Ophthalmic and vision science - MAC exclusion report September 2009

Increasing numbers of ophthalmic investigations and changes in skill mix are likely to result in increased demand for services and therefore healthcare scientists in ophthalmic sciences. However, anecdotal evidence suggests that employers are having little problem recruiting in all areas including the specialist areas such as electrophysiology measurement and that there are no major workforce shortages. In addition, overseas recruitment is not a viable option for the specialist, skilled (as defined by MAC) workforce. As such, WRT recommends removing the profession from the shortage occupation list.
