LEHNs

NHS England will establish local professional networks for pharmacy, dental and eye health.

Twenty five Area Teams* will have a Local Eye Health Network (LEHN) to facilitate clinical input and leadership in service improvement and commissioning at local level.

The initial work of LEHNs will focus on local needs assessment, quality assurance and improving services in line with national eye health pathways. The LEHNs will feed into both the CCGs and the HWBs.

Every LEHN will have a Clinical Chair and there will also be opportunities for optometrists, dispensing opticians and other eye health professionals to get involved with the LEHN in the development of local services and other discreet pieces of work via the LOC.

LOCSU and the Optical Confederation has advised that, to be most effective, LEHNs should be multi-professional and pan-sector including HES, CCG, HWB, Healthwatch and voluntary sector colleagues.

* London has three Area Teams but will have a single LEHN
