Minor Eye Condition Service (MECS) – Launch Event 12th June 2017

Dear All
 
As you know we have been working on your behalf to secure community services across the LOC area through the local hospital trust. At the last LOC meeting we discussed some of the frustrations that we had faced and that the Central London CCG has now expressed a desire to contract directly and at pace.
 
The great news is that we are now progressing at speed and have agreed a provisional launch date for the new MECS service of the 19th June 2017.
Your LOC is planning on holding a launch event at the next scheduled LOC meeting on Monday 12th June 2017 and are encouraging all local contractors and performers to attend.
 
You must have completed your WOPEC accreditation Part 1 and practical Part 2 assessment for MECS to participate in this scheme. If you wish to start this training then please email azsam1@hotmail.co.uk to request the relevant access codes.
 
We plan to launch the Cataract Pre-Assessment and Glaucoma referral refinement schemes by early August also using the WOPEC accreditation.
 
Finally if you have any questions please contact us by email kcwhfloc@gmail.com or join us on the 12th June at Central London CCG Building.
 
Venue: Central London CCG
