Support Groups

Our patient support group model is based on recommendations from the NICE Glaucoma Guidelines published in 2009 and followed up with the NICE Glaucoma Management Quality Standards two years later which recommend that a support group should be initiated by each hospital. The concept of these groups is to allow patients to meet their health care professionals in a relaxed atmosphere, away from the time restricted atmosphere on out patients, so the condition and treatment can be discussed in more depth. It does require the presence of at least one of your local health care professionals whether it be an ophthalmologist, an optometrist or an ophthalmic nurse.

Find a glaucoma patient support group near you. This is a list of confirmed meeting dates – we will add more dates here as they are arranged, so remember to check back if there is nothing near you just now.

To find out if there is a support group in your area please call us on 01233 64 81 70
