Diabetics to be screened at University

04 April 2012

Local people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are to be screened at the Department of Sport and Exercise Science at Aberystwyth University as part of their annual health checks.

The Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Service for Wales (DRSSW) is an all Wales service designed to detect sight threatening diabetic retinopathy at an early stage. 

DRSSW relocated to the University last month (March) from a Day Centre in Aberystwyth and provides a weekly screening service every Wednesday.
