Aman­da Hard­ing, Prin­ci­pal Optometrist at Man­ches­ter Roy­al Eye Hos­pi­tal (MREH) will pro­vide an excel­lent and suc­cinct round-up of the key ones and some that may sur­prise you. This webi­nar will be of inter­est to all pro­fes­sion­als involved in health care, par­tic­u­lar­ly optometrists, phar­ma­cists and GPs.
