    I was called for a test at the hospital, good to know that they have not forgotten me.
    The first test showed background retinopathy, this one is normal.

    Well done!
    I’ve just had my second done, first one was clear, so hoping this one is too.

    Well done @Resurgam that must be a big relief for you. Are you intending to chase up your surgery for blood monitoring?

    I went to the hospital for my eye screening and the technician kept asking me about my annual health checks - which I have not had, ever and contact with the GP practice about my diabetes - but suddenly I have an invitation to make an appointment for an annual health check, so we shall see.

    Just had my first screening after 6 months! Technician couldn’t see picture clearly enough because of cataracts but senior technician wrote with the all clear. Another hurdle crossed’
