70,000+ Londoners to benefit from improved diabetic eye screening

16 Mar 2016

Over 70,000 Londoners are to benefit from a new centralised diabetic service that will make it easier to book and attend vital eye screening appointments.

Medical Imaging UK Ltd, an EMIS Group company, is now providing standardized screening across the London Boroughs of Wandsworth, Richmond, Kingston, Croydon, Sutton and Merton in south west London – areas that were previously serviced by individual providers.

Medical Imaging is one of five organisations selected by NHS England to introduce standardised screening across the whole of London. The aim is to encourage more patients to come forward for testing and to ensure that quality of service is consistently high across the capital.


The new South West London model means that patients diagnosed with diabetes will be able to use a central appointment booking service that is open for longer hours, six days a week, rather than having to book locally during standard office hours
