It has come to our attention, that the Oxfordshire Diabetic Eye Screening Programme (ODESP) are issuing fixed appointments for retinal screening, at scattered Oxfordshire venues, rather than sending you the list of venues to choose from.
We would like to reassure you that Patricia Hayselden and Partners are still actively providing the retinal screening service for ODESP, so you can still have your appointment with us, in Wallingford.
If you would prefer this, when your letter arrives, simply phone ODESP, ask them to cancel the appointment that they’ve sent you and inform them that you will contact Patricia Hayselden and Partners, to arrange your own appointment. We can offer a wider choice of days and times, for your convenience.
Many of our patients find it is convenient to have their main sight-test eye examination at the same time as the screening appointment, so please let us know, when you contact us, whether the appointment is just for the ODESP screening, or a combined appointment with your NHS eye examination.
We look forward to seeing you again soon. Remember not to drive, as pupil dilating drops are likely to be used, which can cause some blurring for a few hours afterwards.
