Seeing Beyond The Eyes

Thanks to the support of Thomas Pocklington Trust, Visualise Training & Consultancy have launched a free resource pack for professionals which enables opticians to easily locate and refer patients to support services.

It includes details on local sensory impairment teams, sight loss charities, eye clinic liaison officers (ECLOs), vision assessment services and habilitation workers. National support services are also listed, along with condition specific charities and resources for professionals.

Suppliers of low vision aids and daily living solutions are also included to help readers locate specialised assistive technology and equipment. The free pack has been well received and is available in hard copy or digital formats. The following link will take you to the resource pack  http://www.visualisetrainingandconsultancy.com/resource-pack-health-pros/
