The IGA is pleased to be supporting the 100 Voices campaign, a patient experience initiative for eye services.
EyesWise is an NHS project that aims to save sight and improve lives. Since April 2018, work has been underway in hospital eye services across the country to streamline and speed up outpatient treatment for patients at highest risk of sight loss. As part of EyesWise we are now launching the 100 Voices campaign to find out what it feels like to use those services.
What would patients, carers and staff like the people involved in commissioning and providing services to know? What is your experience of making appointments and attending ophthalmology outpatient clinics since April 2018? The100 Voices campaign will gather and share your stories.
As one of the highest volume outpatient specialties, oophthalmology is a key focus and understanding the perspective of patientsis essential to understanting the priorities for the redesign of ophthalmology services. Forthcoming work on the redesign of ophthalmology services will build on the outcomes and learning from EyesWise and the 100 Voices campaign.
If you think the NHS can learn from our experience, please tell us your story. You can write about it or upload a video or recording of yourself talking about it. To share your story and be part of the sim to streamline and speed up outpatient treatment, please click here.
Glaucoma UK’s Board of Trustees is considering changing the charity’s membership model. The result would be that the trustees would become the only voting members.
The Board would continue to draw trustees from our membership and the people we support, and the charity would continue to provide opportunities for the people who use our services to influence how we deliver them.
We would welcome your views.Read More
