Treatment delays - the importance of speaking out

The Macular Society is encouraging patients who are experiencing delays in their treatment to speak out about it, following the example of a patient from Pembrokeshire with dry age-related macular degeneration, who found that the gap between her vital injections kept increasing, putting her sight at risk.

After her story was featured in national newspapers, Pam did get an appointment. You can read more on the Macular Society website.

Anyone with macular disease who is experiencing delays to treatment and needs support should contact the Macular Society’s advocacy service on 0300 3030 111.
