Health Professionals – all you need to know

As a health professional, you play a key role in helping a person who’s blind or has low vision come to terms with their sight loss and continue to live their life.  Whether you are an ophthalmologist, optometrist, GP, nurse, physiotherapist or other health professional – the Blind Foundation can help you and your patients.

The Blind Foundation welcomes referrals from health professionals.  We encourage you to complete the online referral form or  write us a referral letter. You can also speak to one of our team on 0800 24 33 33.

To understand how the Blind Foundation can help your patients, you can learn about our services and support.   Whether your patient needs help around the home or wants to keep reading, we can help.   Our expert teams also help people learn to get around, seek or keep employment and continue with many other areas of life.  The Blind Foundation also offers a range of equipment specifically designed to assist people who are blind or have low vision.

Key to offering a great experience is ensuring the information on your website or in your brochures is easy to read.

If your building is accessible it’s so much easier for someone who’s blind or has low vision to visit you.  Once they’re through the door, you and your staff can welcome them by greeting and guiding in the right way.
