Profile of diabetic eye screening

The Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Diabetic Eye Screening Programme serves almost 51,000 people with diabetes across the area.

Once people have been referred to the programme by their General Practice, we are responsible for inviting people for and carrying out all aspects of screening, including grading and referring to the Hospital Eye Services as required.
