New statistics reveal extent of delays to eye care in Wales

The Welsh Government recently introduced new measures for eye care waiting times, and as a result, has identified that almost 35% of all patients in the highest risk category waited longer than the target time.

The impact of these delays on patients was highlighted in a report on BBC Wales News, which you can read here. The new measures are part of a £10 million investment to transform eye care in Wales, and aim to ensure that people at highest risk of eye disease who need be seen quickly due to their condition, should experience fewer delays. You can read the Welsh Government's statement on the investment here.
