Welcome to the December issue of the GP Eye Health Network. In this edition we focus on childhood eye conditions.


You will find:

a factsheet on childhood eye conditions

an article on the importance of children’s vision screening

brief information on the significance of sight loss in children

information on spotting the signs of Retinoblastoma

We also show how junior doctors are helping to deliver health and wellbeing projects for people with sight loss in local communities.

An eye health training day for GPs is being held on Thursday 26 January 2017 at The Mac Birmingham, delivered by clinical specialists. Visit RCGP for more information and bookings.

Don't forget we have a wide range of events and resources aimed at helping you support patients with sight loss and to promote eye health.

Finally, if you have found this enews useful, please share it with your colleagues and also let them know they can join the network too.

Wishing you a very Happy Holiday.
