An update on your service
On 1 April 2016, your NHS diabetic eye screening provider, Medical Imaging UK rebranded as EMIS Care.
How will this affect me?
Nothing has changed about the service you receive, the way you book your appointment or the locations where you’re screened. You’ll still see the same local staff and we’ve informed your GP and the local hospital of our rebrand.
What about my details and medical records?
All your medical records and details are stored in exactly the same secure locations as before. EMIS Care will not have access to your full medical records, only information that is required for diabetic eye screening purposes. These details include name, address, telephone contacts, date of birth, ethnicity (if known), GP, screening results (past and present) and access to eye images.
Why have we rebranded?
Our services have always been centred around patients, their carers and families. For over 25 years we’ve focussed on improving the health and wellbeing of the people we serve. Changing our name to EMIS Care is a reflection of what we do as a company - we care. We support healthier and longer lives for everyone.
What changes will I notice?
In clinics you will notice staff have new uniforms and badges with some minor logo changes to signage. We’ve launched a new website which contains all your local diabetic eye screening information – you can now find this at emiscare.com
Anything we haven’t covered?
If you have any other questions, please contact your local programme using the telephone number or email address provided on your appointment letter.
