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.

 

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

Triage System

auriscope_in_earWe offer a triage nurse service Three weekday mornings Monday, Tuesday and Friday to see urgent medical problems that cannot wait for an available routine appointment. This is managed by the triage nurse who can seek the advice of our duty doctor.

The triage service is for patients who feel they need to be seen before a routine appointment is available. The triage team would not expect to discuss ongoing or complex problems which are appropriately addressed at a routine appointment.

When ringing the surgery for an ‘on the day’ (triage) appointment please call as soon after 8.30am as possible.

It is vital for patients to phone prior to attending. The demand for this service is different every day and consequently the clinic may not always run to time. If appropriate the triage team may be able to deal with problems by telephone.

Ailments that the nurse can help you with include: You can also see our link to Pharmacy First with lots of useful information about Self Care.
