Warning about a tsunami of blindness across Wales
The Welsh Government has published the latest ophthalmology waiting time data, showing that 51% of patients are still not seen in their target time.
Last week, Gwyn Williams, president of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in Wales, told the BBC that ophthalmology struggled to meet needs before Covid.
However, he said it had “no hope without innovative ideas and substantial investment in services infrastructure and new ways of working”.
Mr Williams added that Wales faced the risk of a “tsunami of blindness across the whole country unless we are able to reorganise”.
