Diabetes

The programme screens the eyes of patients by capturing high quality digital photographs which are then graded by specialist staff. Those patients found to have complications in the back of eye are referred to the local Hospital Eye Services for more detailed assessment and possibly treatment. If treatment is required, it is delivered by laser, which has been proven to be very effective in controlling eye disease provided it is applied very soon after diagnosis, which is why annual screening is so important. More recently, service has been expanded to also include diabetic foot screening assessment for all patients. Patients attending Sunderland Clinics will also undergo diabetic foot assessment, whilst South Tyneside screening Programme has been extended to include additional tests such as Blood Pressure Blood / Urine Sampling and BMI measurements. The open appointment system operates to offer as much choice and flexibility of appointment with clinics running across all sites Monday to Friday. Some evening appointments are also offered for those who may find it difficult to attend during office hours. It should be noted that patients are unable to drive to and from their appointments due to the use of dilating eye drops.
