A HEALTH watchdog wants to hear users' feedback on a diabetes prevention and treatment service.

The diabetic eye screening programme, run by Pennine Acute Hospitals Trust, is a service used to identify and treat diabetic retinopathy, a complication of diabetes affecting the eyes.

If left untreated it can lead to sight loss and have a devastating impact on individuals and their families.
