BARS and Bristol Community Health have commissioned a short animation that screening programmes can use to educate their patients or use as an advert on GP video systems about the screening process. If programmes would like to use the animation please contact BARS council on firstname.lastname@example.org
BARS council would like to say a special thank you to Kate Broadhurst, the artist who spent many hours creating the animation.
A short film from Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust reminding us of the importance of regular eye screening.
One of the most popular presentations at the 2014 BARS Conference in Birmingham came from Louise Clark and Gary Henderson of the NHS Tayside screening programme, who spoke about their work developing patient information for deaf people. That included the production of a short film with sign language to explain the screening process to new patients, and BARS is very happy to share that film here.
BARS member, Nicholas Barclay, of the Surrey DESP created an innovative grading tool as part of a Service Improvement Facilitator Course run by Virgin Care. The hand-held plastic tool has been trialled within the Surrey programme with positive results, and is undergoing some minor modifications with the aim of being used for day-to-day grading. Nick has made this video to demonstrate how the tool is used.
