Caerphilly Council launches eyecare scheme

EXCLUSIVE: Caerphilly County Borough Council has launched an eyecare scheme for its 4,500 employees using a series of roadshows to communicate with staff.

During the roadshows, which were held at the end of October across various locations, employees were able to view a range of glasses and have their vision screened onsite by opticians from provider Specsavers.

The contract is part of a framework agreement that is also available to 14 other councils in the area.
