Applying To Join A Performers List

A student optometrist (pre-registration trainee) may apply to join a PCT list not less than three months before they anticipate being entered on the General Optical Council register.

The student may not be entered onto the PCT list, but the intention is that their application is processed as far as possible so that, when they have qualified, there is a minimal waiting period before they are entered in the performers list.

On qualification, the optometrist must register with the General Optical Council for entry onto the Opticians Register before they can practise at all. Subject to the other checks etc having already been satisfactorily completed and this being done and confirmed to the PCT which the student had applied to, the optometrist could then quickly be added to the PCTs list and begin working as a performer.
