Shropshire Disability Network have received the following message from Emma Chaplin, Eye Clinic Liaison Officer:
“I would like to offer my services to any of your service users who are concerned about their vision during the COVID-19 epidemic.
My role is to offer practical and emotional support to people with a sight condition, their families and carers. I am usually based within eye clinics at the Royal Shrewsbury and Princess Royal Hospitals but am currently working remotely.
I can provide advice and information on a range of matters including:
- living with sight loss and remaining independent
- details of latest aids and equipment
- eye conditions and treatment information
- emotional support
- the advantages of certification and registration
Anyone can self-refer, I can accept secure email referrals via firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact me direct on my mobile – 07808 736449.
Please note that I am working from home with other family members present so may not always be able to answer the phone, but if you leave a message I will call back as soon as possible.
Please do get in touch if you need any further information.
