Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board – Review of Eye Care Services
16 December 2021

Our work sought to answer the question: Are eye care services in the Health Board delivered efficiently, effectively and economically, with clear plans to meet current and future population needs?

Overall, we found that there has been a substantial deterioration in eye care service performance because of the pandemic. The Health Board is keen to improve and is adopting what is understandably a reactive response to waiting list growth caused by the pandemic alongside building on its more proactive plans that it had started to develop in 2018 and 2019. Significant challenges remain, particularly because demand is expected to be greater in future than has been seen in the past.
