Diabetic Eye Screening During COVID-19

With the current Coronavirus outbreak and Government restrictions on movement and social isolating/distancing, the Diabetic Eye Screening Programme have taken the decision to pause diabetic eye screening with immediate effect to ensure patients are not put at unnecessary risk.

All appointments have been cancelled and they are currently contacting patients who have screening appointments in the coming weeks to inform them that screening is being paused.  Patients will be sent a new screening appointment, at a later date, when the restrictions are lifted.

In the meantime, if you are a diabetic patient and are showing signs of losing vision, please telephone your local Hospital Eye Service.
