South East London Diabetic Eye Screening Programme

Who we are

The South East London Diabetic Eye Screening Programme, which is known locally as SEL DESP, is the diabetic retinopathy screening programme for patients aged 12 and over who are registered with a GP in south east London (Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Bexley, Bromley and Greenwich).

What we do

Guy’s and St Thomas’ provide the Diabetic Eye Screening Programme for people living in south east London. We screen the eyes of people with diabetes to detect the early stages of diabetic retinopathy using special digital cameras. Most people have no signs of diabetic changes but must be seen each year to ensure this remains the case.

If we do detect changes, we will refer you directly to see a specialist eye doctor at a local hospital.

We run daily clinics at several hospital/community healthcare sites and seven high street opticians. Please see the clinics page for more information. All appointments and administration is managed centrally by an administration team based at Guy’s Hospital.


Patients who are aged 12 and over who are registered with a GP in South east London.
