Enhanced Optometric Services - Part 2 (Scotland & Northern Ireland)

Episode 18,  Mar 29, 2022, 08:00 AM

The four nations of the UK each have their own Enhanced Optometric Services. This is the second of two episodes which explore how these pathways benefit patients, practitioners and the NHS. In this episode, Michelle Hanratty explores the services available in Scotland with Kathryn Trimmer, an IP optometrist based in Grampian, and in Northern Ireland with Mairead O’Kane, an IP optometrist based in Omagh. We also talk to a patient called Doug, who used the enhanced service in Scotland when he was diagnosed with uveitis, and continues to visit the optometrist when the condition flares up.
