Guidance Notes

“independent” is usually interpreted as – An Independent Optometric or Dispensing Optical Practice, or Group Practice, being one that is under the complete ownership control of a person included in the GOC Register, with no obligatory restriction on practice activity, or contractual requirements in the running of the practice, applied by another person or corporate body. Where the Practice or Group Practice is owned by more than one person, then to be considered independent, at least 50% of the partners or director owners should be included In the GOC Register, with the same caveats that apply to single ownership.
