RNIB Wants Eye Clinics To Provide Sight Loss Advisors

April 15, 2014

Every eye clinic in the UK should provide access to a sight loss advisor, the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) has claimed.

The charity found that almost half of all eye hospitals in the UK did not offer any support for people after their diagnosis.

Stevie Johnson from the RNIB told BBC Radio 5 live’s Morning Reports: “For a long time, the emotional and practical needs of people have been overlooked.”

An NHS England spokesperson said they were aware that eye health care was “fragmented with variations in outcomes” and they were determined to address those issues to improve care.
