Patients invited to share views on hospital based eye services

Date exercise ended - Monday, December 30, 2019

NHS England and Improvement are asking for your views on hospital based eye services (ophthalmology) as part of their #100voices patient experience campaign.

The 100 Voices campaign aim is to collect and share people’s stories about what it feels like to use eye services with key staff who plan, pay for and provide those services. This will help them as they redesign future ophthalmology care and treatment.

100 Voices is part of NHS England and Improvement’s National Elective Care Transformation programme, called EyeWise with support from the Royal National Institute for Blind People, the Macular Society, the International Glaucoma Association and the Patient Experience Network.

EyeWise aims to ensure people in England who need hospital eye care are seen as quickly as possible, and others with more minor eye conditions are spared the need to attend specialist eye clinics, in line with the outpatient commitments made in the NHS Long Term Plan.

How to give your views

If you have had experience of these services, your hospital may have already contacted you to ask you to complete a survey.

Either way, if this relates to you, we would encourage you to fill in our online survey which you can find here.

If you prefer to speak to someone direct, you can contact the Eyewise team on 0113 824 8672 or email Louise at Patient Experience: saying that you want to be part of 100 Voices and giving your name, phone number or email address, and the best time for her to call you back and she will be in touch to arrange a call to hear about your experiences.
