Sight loss advisors news
Sally Wilkinson chair of the Rotherham Visually Impaired Group (RVIG) and RNIB Volunteer Campaign Coordinator has been contacting Rotherham MPs about threats to her local Eye Clinic Liaison Service.
On 17 October, Steve Rotheram, MP for Liverpool Walton, joined us alongside Bradbury Fields, who deliver services for blind and partially sighted people across Merseyside, to talk about the need for people to be given support when diagnosed with a sight condition.
We’re working alongside colleagues from Action for Blind People and Southampton Sight and Opensight to protect the local Eye Clinic Liaison Officer (ECLO) service which has been removed due to budget cuts.
On 26 November 2014 we will be holding an ECLO event in Parliament.
Bristol West MP, Stephen Williams met with Bristol Eye Hospital ECLO, Laura Kirby, on Friday 16 May
