NHS Sight Tests for Traineeships

Please see details below regarding free NHS Sight Tests for Traineeships:

Individuals under the age of 19 who are undertaking a Welsh Government Traineeship are eligible for a free NHS Sight Test. The criteria for under 19 year olds is the same as those required for an NHS Sight Test – therefore if a person on the Welsh Government Traineeship programme is deemed to satisfy the eligibility for a sight test, they will also be deemed eligible for a voucher to meet or contribute to the cost of glasses/optical appliances.

You will note that satisfactory evidence for  those persons on Welsh Government Traineeships, with attendance of 21 hours or more a week, who require an eye test, is a letter from their Training Provider and/or an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to confirm their Traineeship status.
