Title: Economic Impact of an Eye Clinic Liaison Officer (ECLO): A Case Study
Author: Phil Sital Singh, Publisher: RNIB
RNIB Group Eye Clinic Liaison Officers (ECLOs) provide timely interventions of emotional and practical support to over 16,000 patients diagnosed with sight loss each year.
This research used recognised Social Return on Investment (SROI) methodology to evidence the cost effectiveness of providing an early intervention ECLO support service. SROI can be used as part of the due diligence process for commissioners considering making an investment.
The Full report details all outcome valuations and assumptions including social, health and welfare spend. We have included a summary of this full report. These documents are useful for those with an overview budget responsibility.
Another report focuses just on savings to health and social care budgets (excluding welfare expenditure). We have produced a short briefing paper of this report. These documents are useful when talking to Health and Social Care commissioners who are not concerned with welfare expenditure.
