The General Optical Council
United Kingdom

Retention fees for General Optical Council (GOC) registrants will increase by up to 48 per cent for 2010/11, while differential fees for optometrists and dispensing opticians will also come into effect.

The fees are set to rise from £219 for all practitioners to £325 for OOs, an increase of 48 per cent, and £280 for DOs, a 28 per cent increase. The new fees were agreed by Council at its November 18 meeting and apply to the next retention period which runs from 1 April 2010 – 31 March 2011.

We are calling on the GOC to STOP this constant increase in membership fees.

We are currently in a climate of economic recession, and such increases are not welcome by its members.
