Diabetic Care – We Need Your Help! Feedback by 31 December

The PHA (Public Health Agency) who commission the Diabetic Eye Screening Programme [DESP] service in Northern Ireland are reviewing the provision of DESP in NI and are currently exploring various options around the service delivery model.   The review is at the Pre-Consultation  stage where the PHA would like as many responses as possible – from both groups and individuals.   Following on from this, the PHA working group will give consideration to all the responses and choose the ‘best fit’ model.   This Pre-Consultation  stage is where impact and change can be made – now is the time to have your say.  ONI will submit a response on behalf of NI optometrists but we would encourage all practitioners to submit individual responses.  Responses need to be submitted by 31st December 2017. Details of the Consultation can be found PreConsultation DESP Options 271017 V1.3 PreConsultation DESP Options 271017 V1.3 and the Questionnaire at Pre-consultation Questionnaire V1.4 26 Oct 17
