Demand for hospital eye clinic appointments and community eye services discussed in parliament

Last week, the secretary of state for health was asked what steps his department is taking to address the increased demand for eye clinic appointments and hospital eye services.

The question related to recent concerns expressed by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists regarding the escalating pressure on hospital eye services.

David Parkins, chair of the clinical council for eye health commissioning has welcomed the question, but is highlighting the need for a step change in commissioning and delivery.
