Do you have age-related macular degeneration (AMD)? Have you ever wanted to change something about the treatment you receive? Well now’s your chance.
 
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is the organisation that tells care services, such as hospitals, in England and Wales how they can improve health and social care. This year they're planning on rewriting the guidelines for AMD, as well as for cataracts and glaucoma, and we want to make sure your voice is heard.
 

Have your say on the treatment you receive.

 
Whether you have something to say about the amount of time it takes to get appointments, the information you’re given, or any other aspect of your treatment, it’s important that these decision makers know what matters to you.
 
If you'd be willing to take part in a short survey or telephone interview to discuss your experiences, please use the form below to leave your contact details with us. 
 

Leave your details with us to help influence how your eye conditions are treated in the future.

 
When will we be in touch?

We'll get in touch with you when NICE release the guideline relevant to your condition: for AMD this will be July 2017. There have been some delays so don’t worry if you've not heard from us yet.
