I am so concerned about the shut down of all normal nhs services from the p.o.v. Of my elderly mother.
She normally receives regular eye injections to prevent further sight loss, and these have been cancelled with no monitoring. There is a high risk of further blood clots to the back of her eyes.
She has hearing aids and her hearing has deteriorated so badly. She needs retesting but no response from clinics. I am aware that hearing loss is the biggest single factor causing step down in dementia and cognitive functioning. her cognitive function has shockingly worsened during lockdown.
