Summary

General Ophthalmic Services, Selected Activity Statistics for England - April 2014 to September 2014.
The mid-year selected activity statistics are shown by Area Team. There is a spreadsheet which provides a summary of the activity, "data tables". For the first time, this includes the previous year's data for ease of comparison. The detail behind the 2014-15 data is contained within the three csv data files. As usual there is a beginner's guide and a data quality statement, but with this publication, we have also attached a short survey as an editable MS Word document.
The survey is with regards to the eligibility categories contained within the annual publication issued in July each year. It is only four questions, which require only a brief response. We would be most grateful if you would please spare a few moments of your time to let us know how useful or otherwise the eligibility categories are to you. The responses will be treated confidentially and will help us to determine the value of providing the eligibility categorisation.

Key facts

General Ophthalmic Services, Selected Activity Statistics for England - April 2014 to September 2014

  • There were fewer sight tests carried out between April and September 2014 (6.41 million) than in the same period in 2013 (6.45 million).
  • There were also fewer vouchers redeemed in the first half of 2014-15 (2.34 million) than the first half of 2013-14 (2.37 million).
  • However, the total number of items for repair and replacement increased in the first half of 2014-15 (262 thousand) compared to the first half of 2013-14 (239 thousand). This was largely due to the number of frames; repair or replacement of both lenses also increased but repair or replacement of only one lens decreased year on year.
