Views wanted from people with diabetes attending the NHS Diabetic Eye Screening Programme in England.

Researchers are inviting people living with diabetes to participate in a survey to find out their views on the possibility of using automated systems, including artificial intelligence (AI), to assist with eye screening in the English NHS Diabetic Eye Screening Programme.

The survey is being conducted by a research team at St George’s, University of London, working with Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the Homerton Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust on a project funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research.

Automated systems to detect diabetes-related eye complications have been developed over the last 15 years and have been shown to perform well in identifying images with diabetes-related eye disease.

The anonymous survey takes about 10 minutes to complete.

NOTE: DRWF will from time-to-time advise readers of ‘calls to participate’ in diabetes and related health research studies. It should not necessarily be considered that the charity is in any way connected to the study or the group issuing the call for participants. If we are involved in any way, we will make this known. We will only share external calls where we have confirmed that the study holds ethics committee approval, and the study is specific to diabetes and related health. Taking part in a medical research study is a big step and further helpful information can be found via the National Institute for Health and Care Research Clinical Trials Guide.
