With two to three month waiting lists at many diabetic screening centres, it could be far too easy for those with diabetes to miss vital screening checks – but Specsavers in Boscombe are offering a solution.

Avoid a long waiting list

The store offers diabetic screenings five days a week, with no waiting list, which means people can often be seen on the day they come in.

No barriers in Boscombe

Specsavers Boscombe store director, Andreas Booth said: ‘We want to ensure that there’s nothing stopping our customers from undergoing essential screening checks.

The importance of diabetic screenings

‘Those with diabetes should have a screening done once a year to avoid any conditions being left unnoticed, such as haemorrhages. Our store welcomes any diabetic customer to come and have their screening, with a high quality of service to put their minds at ease.'
