Diabetes retinopathy recall

Project summary

Homerton University Hospital manages and provides the North East London Diabetes Eye Screening Programme. This aims to identify sight-threatening diabetic eye disease at a treatable stage, to prevent blindness in people with diabetes. Up to date lists of ‘everyone with diabetes’ in local CCG areas are needed to ensure that diabetes eye screening is offered to everyone who needs it, and that people who have left the area don’t have redundant and wasteful appointments sent to their former NE London address.

Project population

All patients who are registered at practices in Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge, and Waltham Forest CCGs.

Project cohort

People with diabetes aged 12 years and older.

Project criteria

All patients who are:

  • aged 12 years and older.
  • have a diagnosis of diabetes included on one of the following lists:
  • National list of Read codes released by the national screening body (national criteria).
  • Local list of Read codes from QOF business rules for diabetes mellitus (local criteria).
