CHEC to exhibit at 100% Optical 2024

visit chec on stand b622 at 100 optical 2024

CHEC, one of the largest providers of community-based ophthalmology services in the UK, is welcoming 100% Optical attendees to visit its stand to find out more about patient choice and community healthcare provision. 

On stand B622 will be Jose Bailey, Chief Commercial Officer; Lee Stanley, Head of Service Development; Mahmoud Rabie, Clinical Director and Consultant Ophthalmologist; Karen Dewhurst, Lead Optometrist, and Moeman Elnawawy, Consultant Ophthalmologist. The CHEC team will be engaging with visitors about its growth plans for the next 12 months, the benefits of community eyecare, and its free CPD events taking place across the year to support optometrist upskilling.

In the last 18 months, CHEC has successfully increased its hospital sites from 10 to 21, with the most recent opening in Milton Keynes, Warrington and Ilford earlier this year. Plans are already underway to launch new sites in Leeds, Swindon, Chesterfield and Kings Norton. 

Across its ophthalmology and endoscopy services, CHEC consulted over 298,000 patients in 2023*, helping to reduce NHS waiting times by providing access to specialist care and treatments in the community in an average of under four weeks.

Jose Bailey, Chief Commercial Officer, said: “100% Optical is one of the key dates in our calendar every year, as we’re always keen to engage with industry peers about what we’re collectively doing to improve eye care for patients. 

“This year, having grown our national footprint exponentially, we’ll be promoting the fact our services are being made available to more people across the country and the benefits this has in terms of improving their quality of life and reducing pressure on the NHS. It promises to be another fantastic year for the exhibition, and we look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand.”
