Our service

Our mixed diabetic eye screening programme, with five mobile clinics and multiple static screening locations, enables us to offer appointments which are local to you.

As one of our patients, your eyes will be screened annually so we can identify changes as they happen. This gives you the best possible chance to address the situation and make appropriate decisions to protect your vision, with the support of your diabetic healthcare team.

If you’re aged 12 or over and have been diagnosed with diabetes, you’ll be added to the diabetic register by your GP and will be invited to an annual screening appointment.

We follow standards set by the national diabetic eye screening programme and offer appointments to over 40,000 patients each year.
