Diabetes is the second largest cause of preventable blindness in adults, so don’t lose sight of your screening appointment
From 1st April 2018 your current diabetic eye screening programme will be changing to a new provider, Health Intelligence. All patients who use the Diabetic Eye Screening Service will be invited to attend their next screening appointment as usual.
If you use this service, you do not need to take any action.
NHS England will ensure that your individual data and screening history is held securely and only accessible by the healthcare professionals directly involved in your care. Health Intelligence will only access information that is relevant to your individual healthcare. The information will not be used for any other purpose.
If you have any questions call 0118 391 3000 or check out the new website www.berkshiredes.nhs.uk
