UKOA National Meeting 1st February 2023

1st February 2023 10.00 – 12.30pm

A Focus on Patients

We were delighted to welcome members to our meeting on 1st February 2023 via Teams.

The theme of the meeting was ‘A Focus on Patients’ and we had a packed agenda with some fascinating and thought-provoking sessions.

We began with Lisa Donaldson and Lance Campbell from Seeability and Paula McGrath at Retina UK who shared how their third sector organisations support people with sight problems and sight loss. We moved on to hear from Robert Cooper who informed members about the work RNIB have been involved in around the Eyecare Support Pathway. Peter Thomas from Moorfields then shared some valuable insight and updates around the development of patient portals across the eyecare and health sector. Declan Flannagan updated members on the Certificate of Vision Impairment, how the data is used and ideas for future development around the management of the process. Finally, we welcomed Carolyn Chamberlain and Cathie Burke from RNIB to discuss the importance of the Eye Care Liaison Officer role in supporting patients and facilitating the CVI process.

We would like to thank all our speakers for their excellent contributions and all our members for attending.
