Opchat News and its PHN secure LOC websites have been redeveloped and launched today
Opchat News Main Site
After considerable development time, and investment PHN is pleased to launch its newly modernised websites today.
Opchat News now has a new look where you can find out the latest news from the home page as news snippets and link to the full story or go the the Sector News Page where you can select the topic types that interest you the most and read the news as it was published in date order, so the latest or drill back for archived news.
Your new website is now easily visible whether on PC, tablet on smartphone.
Our knowledge resource stories are retained for you reading on our briefing tabs Clinical, Business and other Briefings include Covid Information.
Yo will find a new Events section where your LOC or Company or any Optical association can freely add their meetings, webinars and hybrids with detailed information and links. They will be visible both on the events page and those coming soon will be highlighted on the home page.
Like the most recent news they will also be visible on our secure LOC websites.
We also continue to support optical charities and help-groups in Vision and have retained the Charity tab for a complete Charity Listing with Contact Details.
The whole site has now Vision Impairment Accessibility systems in place to zoom in on content.
LOC Secure Sites
All LOC secure sites provided by PHN have now been updated and provide in one place both public facing pages and menus as well as secure LOC pages on the same front page. Only LOC local members with a code given to them by their local LOC admin can see the secure pages and secure menus..
Using the latest in web design technology the sites have increased security and encryption and content adding has now been simplified. PHN has provided its LOC customers with total freedom to change and customise the look of the sites with their own graphics and style design.
Registration on all sites
PHN developers have transferred the Username registrations of all currently registered as Opchat Members, and each group of LOC registrants to the new sites but with better encryption and security we need everyone to resubmit or choose another password.
Instructions for how to do this will be sent to all registrants by email as soon as the new sites have been launched and checked. There may be a short period of time between this happening.
For those who read Opchat news but have not as yet registered, around 2000 readers, we encourage you to do so as many of the functions that are free to use are only available to registrants. Its free and other than assisting you in receiving the fortnightly news roundup by email (which you can unsubscribe from at any time) it comes with no other strings attached!
We hope you enjoy your new Opchat News written by ECPs for the UK Vision Sector
