At the end of September 2012 three project officers, funded by the project, were placed within each of the three Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to support them through all stages of the commissioning process based on guidance established within the cross-sector developed resource www.commissioningforeyecare.org.uk.
As part of this the project officers are working to improve collaboration between the clinical commissioning group, local authority, local health providers and local voluntary sector.
Each project officer has produced an eye health and sight loss needs assessment in partnership with local key stakeholders. The evidence presented by the needs assessments have been used to present a set of recommendations for consideration by commissioners in terms of service provision and development.
To view the eye health needs assessments that have been developed at each of the three sites please download the Word documents at the bottom of this page.
The evidence presented by the needs assessments have been used to present a set of recommendations for consideration by commissioners in terms of service provision and development. This work will link in to the commissioning intentions for the future and Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs).
The CEE project is running from April 2012 to September 2014 to fit with the commissioning cycle. We are planning to have the outputs of the project presented at relevant conferences in 2014 as well as promoting the interim findings via this website.
The project is being externally evaluated and the first, second and third evaluation reports have now been finalised.
