We have updated some key local authority datasets in the Sight Loss Data Tool Version 3.3. 

The  RNIB’s Sight Loss Data Tool is the UK’s biggest collection of eye health datasets. The product collates a wide range of publically available datasets and allows users to view local area data easily in one of three different automated reports.

January’s updates include:

  • Numbers and rates of NHS sight tests for 2015/16
  • Ophthalmology appointment data for 2015/16
  • Updated ECLO location data for hospitals and NHS Trusts in England
  • Blue badges held by people registered blind in 2016
  • DLA claimant figures for 2016
  • Ophthalmology waiting time data for Wales including the proportion of patient pathways waiting longer than the 26 week target
  • Estimates for the number of adults with learning disabilities and a visual impairment

This Sight Loss Data Tool will undergo minor updates and will be re-published every three months. The next planned update is due to be published on week commencing 24 April 2017.
