Diabetic Eye Screening: Important Notice

The National Diabetic Eye Screening Team have recently issued guidance to restart screening for all in a phased approach. Our Restoration Plan has been agreed with the local NHS England and NHS Improvement Commissioners and we are very pleased and eager to start screening once again.

 

Please use these media assets to use in your surgeries and with social media posts (download zip folder ‘Diabetic Screening GP surgery awareness raising assets’

 

 

  • We will invite people to screening appointments in the following order:
  • Invite over next few weeks and months – those who are pregnant, under digital surveillance, newly diagnosed, had background retinopathy at last appointment (R1M0) or Did Not Attend their last appointment.
  • Next Year – Those who at their last appointment had no retinopathy or maculopathy (R0M0) are at much lower risk of developing diabetic retinopathy.

 

 Should you notice any severe changes to your sight in the meantime, please telephone your local Hospital Eye Department or A&E.

The Bookings Team will be in touch to rearrange all other appointments once screening resumes.

Thank you for your patience.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us HIOWEngagementTeam@health-intelligence.com
