Leighton Hospital launches glaucoma support group
10:46am Tuesday 26th February 2013 in News
PEOPLE with Glaucoma are being invited to talk about their condition with healthcare staff and fellow patients at a new support group.
Glaucoma care staff from Leighton Hospital are holding their first informal session, in association with the International Glaucoma Association (IGA), on Monday, March 18, and are encouraging patients and their family and friends to attend.
The session will include an overview presentation on the condition by Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s new ophthalmology consultant, Dan Nguyen, who specialises in Glaucoma treatment.
The IGA will also be on hand to provide information, such as driving with the condition.
The event, which is free to attend, takes place between 2.30pm-4.30pm at St Michael’s Church Hall in Ford Lane, Coppenhall.
Attendees will be able to meet with some of the doctors and nurses who make up the Glaucoma team at Leighton Hospital, and also suggest topics for future support group meetings.
For further information, call contact Debra Noden, clinical nurse specialist for ophthalmology, on 01270 612102.
