Delays to NHS eye care in Wales highlighted

Once again, BBC Wales has highlighted the concerns of patients who risk losing their sight because of delays to vital injections.

The report includes interviews with two people affected by macular disease - although 'harmful delays' are also affecting patients with glaucoma and diabetic eye disease. You can read the report on the BBC Wales website. The story also featured in the BBC's Wales Live programme, which includes an interview with the Health Minister, Eluned Morgan.

The Macular Society has responded to the story, to explain how they are working with health boards, and supporting patients who raise concern through the Society's support groups. You can read their response here.
