    Interesting the variation around the country. I get a letter from the NHS Retinopathy team at my local hospital and have the screening done there within a specific department. It always works very well.

    I live in East Lancashire, so not at all remote. We do have excellent primary care facilities in my small town though, with an excellent health centre and a modern community hospital run by the GPs. We are very lucky.
