Team continues to raise the profile of home eye and hearing services
The Outside Clinic were delighted to showcase their new exhibition stand at the recent Naidex National held over three days at the NEC. Staff were on hand to talk to members of the public and in particular to chat to carers that were out in force at the annual event.
We were pleased to talk to a number of healthcare professionals including OTs, physiotherapists and rehabilitation specialists that regularly come into contact with patients that would be eligible for an NHS-funded home test. Lots of simple leaflets to pass on were handed out and anyone that would like further sets can request them free by calling the Marketing team on 0800 854477.
The team were also keen to talk to staff working in care and residential homes to promote our clinics for individuals that meet the requirements of the Department of Health’s ‘Care Homes for Older People’ national minimum standards. Home staff were interested to hear about the alternative to impersonal group testing clinics that have been the norm historically.
