Improving delivery of eye health and sight loss services in England

The Clinical Council for Eye Health Commissioning (CCEHC), which represents the leading clinical professions and sight loss charity organisations in the eye-care sector, has launched a new systems and assurance framework for eye health (SAFE).

Increasing demands on eye health services due to the ageing population and the availability of new treatments continue to create capacity issues within the hospital eye service as well as pressures on general practice and social care. SAFE provides a sustainable, consistent and coordinated approach to delivering efficient eye health and sight loss pathways. SAFE is aimed at those involved in eye health and sight loss services: clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local authority commissioners, local eye health networks and providers across health and social care.
