The Northern Ireland Electronic Care Record (NIECR)

Optometrists in Northern Ireland can access the ‘ Optometry-view NIECR ’ for the purpose of providing direct patient care.

The Optometry-view NIECR enables registered Optometrists to view appropriate and relevant ophthalmic and medical information to assist in the provision of their clinical care.

Having access to relevant information will enable an Optometrist to make informed clinical and management decisions for the benefit of their patient and the wider HSC system in Northern Ireland.
