Ophthalmicorp Ltd. was incorporated in January 2016. The directors David Etchells (retired Ophthalmologist) and Josh Thomas (Managing Director) remodelled the long-standing agreement with the leading medical defence union in the UK. In addition they provided beneficial administrative services through links with Medical Business Management Solutions. Membership has been in demand and services are now provided to in excess of 150 Ophthalmologists.
Ophthalmicorp’s aim is to grow membership throughout 2018-19 onwards and continue to support Ophthalmic Consultants across the UK with a wide range of membership services.
