Rapid Access Ophthalmology Clinic

Checked: 15-10-2018 by Rob.Adams Next Review: 15-10-2019


There is no specific Rapid Access Clinic for ophthalmology at the eye hospital so please do not send or fax referrals in this way.

GPs can refer using eRS and mark urgent. The referral service has been reassured referrals sent in this way will be triaged by the eye hospital on a daily basis and seen within the appropriate time scale if necessary.

Opticians who have concerns can refer directly to the eye hospital (they do not have access to eRS).

Alternatively there is the Eye Casualty service if same day assessment is required.
