Trust Merger

On 1 April 2018, the Heart of England and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS foundation trusts merged.
The screening programme is still being run by the same people and the same locations. There are no changes for patients or course attendees.
Our General/Patient Enquiries email address has changed to uhb-tr.retinal-administration@nhs.net though emails to the old address will be redirected for a short while.
