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

TEMPORARY RESIDENT

How do I register as a temporary resident with a GP? - NHS

If you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from any GP surgery.

If you need treatment for more than 14 days you will need to register with that GP surgery as a temporary or permanent patient.

The surgery will ask you to complete a temporary services form GMS3 this can be completed at the surgery before you are seen.

You can register as a temporary resident if you plan to live near the GP surgery for up to three months.

After three months you will have to apply to register with that surgery as a permanent resident.

You can register temporarily with a GP while away from home for work, study or holiday. You'll still remain registered with your permanent GP.

Your temporary GP will pass details of any treatment you have to your GP, who will add the information to your medical records.

If your application to become a temporary patient is refused, you can still receive emergency treatment for up to 14 days.


You will need the following information:

  • details of any medical conditions you have
  • details of medical conditions you've had in the past 
  • the name of any medicines you're currently taking
  • details of anything you're allergic to
  • contact details for your permanent or previous GP
  • NHS number
