LOCSU has developed a comprehensive Clinical Service Pathways Framework incorporating Late AMD Monitoring – this pathway is currently under review.
LOCSU recognises the sector requires new and innovative solutions for service delivery beyond the current well-established pathways. Development work has already commenced on a Medical Retina Monitoring pathway for Late AMD. Following feedback at the NOC workshops on clinical pathway redesign for AMD, LOCSU plan to develop a referral filtering pathway for suspect wet AMD.
Resources will be made available Summer 2019.
LOCSU’s Clinical Service Pathways Framework reflects the approach detailed in the Systems and Assurance Framework for Eye Health (SAFE) published in 2018 by the Clinical Council for the Commissioning of Eye Health. Download the SAFE AMD document.
SAFE provides the basis for commissioners, provider organisations and clinicians to adopt a high-level, strategic, systems-based approach for the planning, provision and commissioning of eye health and care services, covering whole pathways and operating across traditional service footprints.
