FODO and NCHA CEO David Hewlett said:
“As a previous minister for NHS productivity, Lord Prior may be more interested in the solutions we have to offer the NHS in terms of community eye care, hearing and ophthalmology than previous incumbents. For the ageing population of this country, the epidemic of myopia amongst the young, people on waiting lists with age-related hearing loss and people going blind for want of NHS hospital capacity, this is something devoutly to be wished and which FODO, the NCHA and our partners will actively pursue. “
