“Prior to the FAB’s psychology service starting, access to psychological support via the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service took months and the support was not tailored specifically to issues faced by children with visual impairment. Having the consistency of our own psychology team across the region and the ease of communication between ophthalmologist and psychologist as the clinics run side by side, allows a tailored approach to each child and family.
A heartfelt thank-
