 Places are filling up fast, if you have not already done so, please contact us by 14 April to reserve your place.

The England Vision Strategy would like to invite you to attend a meeting to discuss the regional implementation of the England Vision Strategy in Thames Valley.

Leading organisations in England are working together to deliver a plan for change called the England Vision Strategy. As you may be aware, this plan seeks to address the problems faced on a daily basis by individuals with sight loss and to promote the importance of maintaining good eye health.

The England Vision Strategy has identified six priorities until 2018 as the key building blocks for change. These priorities were chosen following extensive feedback from stakeholders and can be found in full on the attached document.

We know that implementing the Strategy at a local level is crucial for achieving success and addressing the priority actions. We will be working with local stakeholders from across the sector with a view to establishing regional groups across all nine England regions with line of sight to every local authority and clinical commissioning group area in England. The desire is for regional groups to be locally owned and to build on current good practices and structures such as the Local Eye Health Networks.

On 22 April, we want to bring people together to discuss local issues and how these might be addressed through the England Vision Strategy.

We would like this event to be as inclusive as possible so we would be grateful if you could publicise this to groups or societies that we may not be aware of.
