DHSC launches eye care consultation

Tue, 17 Oct 2017

The Government is seeking feedback from the public on plans to update the Island's eye care.

The Department of Health and Social Care wants to introduce a £10 fee for eye tests, while reducing the frequency of eye examinations to once every two years.

The DHSC wants to increase the number of eye conditions that can be treated on Island, reducing the need to send patients to the UK for specialist treatment.

Full details of the proposals can be found on the consultation section of the Government's website. Responses can be submitted until November 27th.
