General description

The information presented here shows the number and percentage of band 1 examinations that were claimed for under the Eye Health Examination Wales scheme by reason of attendance.

Data collection and calculation

More than one reason may be recorded per claim. Therefore the sum of Band 1 examinations by reason for attendance would not equal the overall number of Band 1 examinations.

Other reasons for attendance (not included in the data) include patient has retinitis pigmentosa, is at risk of eye disease due to family history, is at risk of eye disease due to ethnic background, needs investigations to comply with WG agreed protocols/guidelines.

This data is obtained from NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership who are responsible for administering the claims received from accredited practitioners carrying out examinations. Data is presented in terms of numbers of examinations claimed for according to the basis for entitlement, outcomes and Health Board of the optometrist delivering the service. The counts are the numbers of examinations which have been claimed for and paid in the financial year rather than the number of examinations which took place during the financial year. Claims generally relate to examinations taking place the month before the claim and payment but if a practice does not submit their claims on a regular basis the delay may be longer, up to a maximum of 6 months.

1st April 2019 health service provision for residents of Bridgend local authority moved from Abertawe Bro Morgannwg to Cwm Taf. For more information see the joint statement from Cwm Taf and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Boards (see weblinks). The health board names have changed with Cwm Taf University Health Board becoming Cwm Taf Morganwg University Health Board and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board becoming Swansea Bay University Health Board. A link to the statement from the minister for health and social service can be found in the weblinks section.
