The networking day is a great opportunity for local programmes, screening and immunisation teams, screening quality assurance service and national team colleagues to meet, network, share best practice and receive updates within the field of diabetic eye screening.

Space is limited and will be restricted to:

  • 2 places per local screening provider
  • one place per screening and immunisation team / commissioners
  • 2 places per SQAS region

Please book your place by Friday 14 September.

Additional places will be made available after this date on a first come, first served basis to local programmes and screening and immunisation teams.

2-day course for clinical leads and medical retina specialists

We are again joining forces with The Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust to offer a 2-day course for clinical leads and medical retinal specialists within diabetic eye screening programmes in England.

This course, to be held on 19 and 20 November, gives an overview of the importance of clinical leadership and governance within the screening programme. It will be facilitated by Professor Paul Dodson and members of the national team and will explore the challenges of the clinical leadership role through group work and discussions.

Topics covered will include the role of clinical lead, quality assurance, grading quality, commissioning of diabetic eye screening services and extended screening intervals.

The course agenda and details of costs will be released shortly. You can register your interest or provisionally reserve a place now.
