A Getting Started Guide for Local Eye Health Networks launched

4 December 2013

LOCSU has launched a guide to support the development of Local Eye Health Networks by NHS England as set out in Securing Excellence in Commissioning Primary Care. The Local Eye Health Networks – A Getting Started Guide has been produced by LOCSU, with the support of NHS England, the Clinical Council for Eye Health Commissioning and the UK Vision Strategy. 

Welcoming the publication of the guide, Sue Pritchard, Assistant Head of Primary Care Commissioning at NHS England, and national lead for Local Professional Networks said: 

“The Getting Started Guide will be an extremely useful reference document for the newly appointed Chairs of emerging Local Eye Health Networks (LEHNs) and the NHS England Area Teams responsible for establishing and managing LEHNs.

“LEHNs provide the opportunity for the eye health professions – together with patients and the voluntary sector – to show leadership, identify priorities and re-design services and pathways to meet population needs.

“The guide is very clear that a collaborative approach reaching out to all stakeholders is the key to the future success of LEHNs.”
