The UK Ophthalmology Alliance (UKOA) has worked in partnership with The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) to develop a set of patient standards designed to improve care for eye clinic patients.
The national Standards make clear the importance of patient support and state that all eye clinics should have an ECLO (Eye Clinic Liaison Officer) and adhere to the RNIB ECLO Quality Framework. RNIB’s Visibly Better Standards are also cited, with the aim of improving the built environments of eye clinics to make them more accessible for people living with sight loss.
Vision UK is very happy to have contributed to and support the UK Ophthalmology Alliance New patient standards to increase support for eye clinic patients
