Profile of diabetic eye screening

The North West London Diabetic Eye Screening Programme was formed on the 1st November 2015. It serves the diabetic population of Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington, Chelsea & Westminster. The programme looks after over 140,000 patients with diabetes.

For patients referred to the programme by their General Practice, we are responsible for inviting, screening, grading & referring to the Hospital Eye Services as required.

The programme engages a large team of qualified Screeners & a small number of community optometrists contracted to assist.
