Update from Primary Eyecare Services:
During this year’s Learning Disability Week, 19 to 25 June, and in close collaboration with our charity of the year, SeeAbility, Primary Eyecare is enhancing its Easy Eye Care service by launching a new Single Point of Access referral pathway to support for people with learning disabilities.
All practices located in the five areas listed below are eligible to deliver the service and will be able to claim an enhanced fee in recognition of the extra patient interaction time and adaptations involved.
The only criteria for participation is that you must have an accredited learning disabilities practitioner working on your team.
The pathway is currently being commissioned in the following five areas:
- Cheshire & Merseyside
- Greater Manchester
- Lancashire & South Cumbria
- County Durham
Please see more details below about our virtual launch event taking place on Thursday 22 June and how you can get involved in the future development of this service.
