We’re the UK’s leading independent company in providing diabetic eye screening services to the NHS.
With over 25 years experience, we provide nine large-scale screening services across the UK to over 300,000 patients – helping to reduce the number of people going blind due to diabetes. We also provide diabetic eye screening services to a large population in Republic of Ireland and provide managed services for several other screening services.
We have over 30 years experience in specialist ophthalmic photography and over 25 years experience in providing screening services in the NHS and private sector.
We pioneered the mobile retinal camera technique, visiting GP practices in Worcestershire in the 1990s – almost two decades before the introduction of a national screening programme in 2003. Forward-thinking GPs wanted the advanced screening equipment used in hospital departments to be used in general practice. We gladly obliged and began providing high quality screening services.
Our innovative approach went beyond simply taking retinal camera equipment into primary care settings. We were early adopters of digital photography using high-resolution scanning techniques.
Take our passion for supporting longer healthier lives, combined with our experience in providing excellent and innovative patient-centric services and you get a mix of expert, dedicated individuals that make up NEC Care.
