Orthoptists MAC report March 2009

WRT considers orthoptists to be a small profession, and as such believes that the profession would benefit from workforce planning being carried out at a national level. There is room for significant growth of the orthoptist workforce. Efforts should be focused on promoting workforce growth through increasing trainee numbers, which will improve the supply situation within the workforce in the medium-long term. However, in the short-medium term the use of overseas recruitment could be a sensible mechanism for alleviating shortages within the profession
