Delivery of eye care services during COVID-19

NHS England and NHS Improvement published a letter on 1 April 2020 covering changes to the delivery and operation of optometry services. The letter covered changes to optometry services delivered outside of hospital, including PPE, contractual, financial and workforce implications. We have produced this slideshow which provides a summary of the changes and a number of useful links for advice and guidance.

Commissioners and ophthalmic practices can contact us at for help to navigate through Covid-19. Existing subscribers can use the eye care helpdesk to submit their queries.
