The interval for Diabetic Retinal Screening is increasing from 12 months to 2 years. The implementation will be staggered over the next 2 years, therefore half of eligible patients will be initially recalled in 12 months with the other half in 2 years. Eligible patients are those with no retinopathy on 2 consecutive occasions at least 12 months apart.
