The BaNES, Swindon & Wiltshire diabetic eye screening programme screens patients for diabetic retinopathy. This page offers general information to diabetic patients about how to book a diabetic eye screening appointment and what will happen at their diabetic eye screening appointment.
Why is this happening?
A single screening programme for people living in Bath & North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire is best placed to meet the needs of the increasing number of people with diabetes, it will also ensure that people with diabetes receive the same high-quality screening across Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire.
Will I notice a difference?
No. You will continue to be offered screening in the same venues and by the same highly qualified staff. Your diabetic eye screening programme is still an NHS funded screening service and will continue to run to the same national standards.

Is my data safe?
If you have been screened by an NHS Diabetic Eye Screening Programme before, your screening record will transfer to the NHS provider EMIS Care in line with a standard data sharing agreement. This is common practice for NHS services.
A ‘Fair Processing Notice’ webpage has been created to give you full details about how your data will be used by the diabetic eye screening programme.
A letter containing all this information has also been created, it can be posted to you upon request should you want more information.
Staff involved in your screening are employed by an NHS body or an NHS partner company commissioned to provide services. All those involved in your diabetic eye screening follow the same NHS standards of confidentiality.
EMIS Care can provide a list of non-NHS personnel and companies if you are concerned in any way about who will see information about you. Please let staff know if you have any particular concerns about any particular individual or company.
We will test your eyes using Minims Tropicamide 1.0% eye drops.
It’s extremely rare, but you may experience a reaction to these drops. If you - or the person you’re caring for - have any of the following symptoms, contact your local A&E department.
- severe eye pain
- nausea and vomiting
- severe headache
- blurred vision and seeing halos around lights
- profuse tearing.
The eye drops we’ve used last for six hours. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery during this time.
