Low Vision Aid
We asked for your views on the Low Vision Aid service
The NHS wanted patients and carers to help shape the future of the Low Vision Aid service. The NHS is now putting plans and proposals together on what this service may look like in the future. To help us to decide what a future service may look like we asked for your views on current services.
About the Low Vision Aid service
Currently the Low Vision Aid Service is delivered in the Acute Trust (hospital) which means that people attend an appointment at either Pinderfields General Hospital or Dewsbury District Hospital where they are assessed and given their aid(s).
We now have the opportunity to change the service, which will also include where the service is based. We want to make sure that the changes help to improve the service and keep the things that you think are already good or work well.
What will happen to my views?
The information we received will help us to understand what works well and what can be improved. Your views play an important part in helping managers understand the best way to plan services in the future.
A number of managers, clinicians and staff will now consider the possible options for planning future services. These will take into account getting the best outcomes for patients whilst managing issues such as patient safety, quality and value for money.
