FODO launches Principles and priorities for primary eye care
It builds on the solid foundations of primary eye care in the UK, one of the world’s most advanced eye care services, but calls for more to be done to ensure patients can access the right care in the right place at the right time to tackle avoidable sight loss and meet a growing need.
Harjit Sandhu, FODO’s managing director, said: “Principles and priorities is based on a long history of innovation in primary eye care services and set outs our vision for the future. The four nations of the UK must tackle the root causes of avoidable sight loss to ensure that every UK citizen can preserve good sight as long as possible as part of a healthy and enjoyable life.
“Our vision – developed through our members, who provide the majority of primary eye care in the UK – is to protect and expand high quality, accessible and sustainable care for patients across the UK. Our route map shows how we will do it.”
