Show Notes Chapter Markers

Eyecare for people with learning difficulties has always been a challenge. But the pandemic has made reaching out to this group even harder. In this podcast LOCSU's CEO Richard Whittington talks to Lisa Donaldson from SeeAbility, and Grace McGill who gives a firsthand account of what it's like to visit an optometrist with a learning disability. LOCSU's interim clinical director Zoe Richmond also discusses a new clinical pathway available for commissioning.
