Transforming Ophthalmology – NHS England Open Webinar

NHS England’s Elective Care Transformation Programme (ECTP) has set up EyesWise a project to encourage new ways of working by eye services, primarily through the ECTP’s High Impact Interventions for Ophthalmology.


NHS England is running an introductory webinar for all-comers on Wednesday 24 April 2019 (13:00-14:30).   It will focus on:


  • introducing the EyesWise Virtual Development Collaborative and the EyesWise Hub
  • showcasing existing great practice in virtual clinics from systems that have already made the change
  • sharing top tips and considerations to inspire and assist the pilot sites
  • evaluation of the 2018/19 High Impact Intervention.


This is a must for anyone interested in NHS England’s approach to transforming ophthalmology in England


If you are interested in joining the webinars, there is no requirement to pre-register.  For those who cannot FODO’s Harjit Sandhu and David Hewlett will be dialing in, and recordings and supporting slides will be uploaded to the EyesWise Hub.


One of the three High Impact Interventions is to map all local capacity against the need for future planning, including in community optical practices and the independent ophthalmology sector.  The NHS often overlooks these latter two aspects.
