NHS Forth Valley Eye Health SBRI Briefing Event

We are launching a new SBRI challenge across NHS Scotland in Eye Health.

Join us for a 90 minute webinar to hear about the challenge. The challenge is to pioneer next generation home vision testing, so that it can be done at home, in school and in under-served communities, with live remote supervision from healthcare professionals - Dr Iain Livingstone, NHS Forth Valley.

Eye problems will be more easily detected, monitored, and managed to prevent sight loss. The project will bring together low-cost digital solutions and sources of relevant information to solve the challenges of:  

·         access to eye testing  

·         quicker diagnostics 

·         enabling self-checks  

We will also hear short presentations from the CSO and Innovate UK on the innovation landscape in Scotland and from Storm ID an industry partner about their experience with the SBRI process. We welcome questions from attendees and hope that you find the session interesting and informative.
