Eye Care Services

Earlier this year, the health and care system in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin embarked on a programme of work to transform local eye care services. The aim is to provide effective eye care services that are more joined up so that adults and children get the best care possible when and where they need it. Watch this short film to find out more.

We ran several engagement activities that enabled us to capture valuable insight, including a public survey, community outreach and a series of workshops. While most people told us that they had had a good experience of our services, we also heard about areas that could be improved.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to talk to us and share their views and experiences. All this rich insight will help us design a model that best meets the needs and wishes of our population.

The programme team has used all the learning gathered to design the future model. Read on to learn how you can find out more and share your views about our proposals.

Have your say on local eye care!

Join our local Eye-care Transformation Team on Tuesday 7 February to hear about proposals for future eye-care services and share your views and feedback.

The online session, which is open to members of the public, will include an update on the progress we have made and give you the opportunity share your views and feedback about our proposed new model of care. We want to know if you think we’ve got it right or if there is anything we have missed or need to consider further.

When: 7 February from 17:30 to 19:30

Where: Online via MS Teams
