About Dudley LOC

We strongly encourage contractors and performers in the Dudley area to bring any concerns they may have to us. Any queries or matters you would like brought to the attention of the committee please contact us.

Business Plan

We have now updated our Dudley LOC Business Plan for 2017-18


The LOC is governed by a constitution. Nationally, a model constitution is written by LOCSU on behalf of the optical confederation and approved by NHS England/Department of Health. Dudley LOC adopted the most recent version of this at our AGM in 2017. This is available below.
