Eye Care Support Pathways
We are delighted to announce that Pete Hoey will be joining the Visionary team in August.
Some of you know about our collaborative Eye Care Support Pathways project working alongside RNIB – we are pleased to welcome Pete into the role of Pathways Lead.
This exciting new project has been developed from ongoing discussions between Visionary member organisations and RNIB. The project will work with between 4 and 6 local members to influence Integrated Care Boards (ICB’s) in England and ensure that the voice of the local user is represented within eye care support pathways.
We hope that the learning from the 12-month project will help other organisations to develop influential relationships with ICB’s.
“Visionary are known for helping sight loss charities to work together, so I’m honoured to be joining as Pathways Lead. Developing the Eye Care Support Pathways with Visionary’s members and local partners, alongside national sight loss charities will bring huge benefits to those we support – people affected by sight loss and their families. I’m looking forward to working with everyone and making positive changes within our sector.”
Phil Ambler RNIB ‘s England Country Director
“At RNIB, we’re delighted to be funding this post and working in partnership with Visionary and its members. The eye care support pathway is a key area of work for us and the sector, so it is great to have someone with Pete’s knowledge and experience leading this project. We’re really looking forward to the learnings which will be developed and having them put into practice.”
