Ophthalmology Outpatient Appointments
In most cases, patients that need an appointment at the Ophthalmology Department require it to be face to face, so that detailed eye examinations can be performed. With that in mind, telephone consultations and videoconferencing are unfortunately unlikely to be carried out for the majority of Ophthalmology patients.
Face-to-face appointments are still available for emergency/urgent patients and for patients requiring eye injections (IVT). The urgency and appropriateness of each patient attending the department are reviewed by a clinician before being booked.
Please rest assured that, if you had an appointment canceled since 18 March 2020, your records will have been clinically reviewed by a doctor to ensure it is safe to defer your appointment until after Covid-19. You will receive a letter or telephone call advising of the next steps.
ALL ophthalmology operations have also been postponed. If you are on the waiting list, you will remain on it until we are advised that we are able to operate again.
If you feel that we should see you urgently, even in current circumstances, then please ring/email the consultants’ secretary who will speak to your consultant for advice.
We will update this page as guidance changes and restrictions are lifted across the country. If you have any enquires or concerns please do not hesitate to contact: Claire Booth, Service Manager – Head and Neck Services on 01302 642395 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Monday to Thursday)
