The current ophthalmology provision within west Hampshire for acute and chronic eye conditions often means a visit to hospital for diagnostics and/or treatment.
West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group (WHCCG) is currently in the process of designing community ophthalmology services to offer diagnosis and treatment in the community closer to the patients home so it can be more convenient. By managing low risk acute or long term conditions in the community will also allow the Hospital Eye Service to focus on those high risk urgent patients making the service safer for those attending.
WHCCG would like to hear patient experiences which may help us improve the way we design our services. In responding to this survey you could influence and shape the way the service is delivered to ensure a better service and improved quality for the patients.
