Strategic Panels

and Leadership Panel

Vision UK’s strategy is to create a movement for change in the eye health and sight loss sectors by mobilising our unique partnerships and alliances around key priority areas. There will be four strategic panels convened to look at these priority areas. The strategic panels will be governed by the executive and Governance Board of Vision UK and overseen by the Leadership Panel which will meet annually.
