Diabetic Eye Screening
Patients with a South Wiltshire GP
Local diabetic eye screening services have merged as a larger unified programme and the Salisbury & North Hampshire Diabetic Eye Screening Programme (DESP) no longer provides your screening. If you have a GP in south Wiltshire your screening will be provided by the new Bath & North East Somerset (BaNES), Swindon & Wiltshire DESP. For all other patients with a Wiltshire GP your service will be unchanged.
Please contact 01225 582 300 for further information and contact details. Website: www.BSWdesp.info
Patients with a Hampshire GP
The following three existing programmes have been merged
- Southampton DESP
- Part of the Salisbury and North Hampshire DESP (Only the North Hampshire Practices)
- Portsmouth & South East Hampshire DESP
*Please note, that if you were previously screened by the mobile screening unit, this will no longer be visiting each practice. Instead the new provider will be operating from fixed community venues. They will initially invite you to your closest venue and the letter will explain how you can call to request a different appointment at a venue, date and time of your choice.
