The new Hounslow Community Ophthalmology Service will build on the success of the previous providers to deliver a comprehensive range of benefits to its service users including:
- A Consultant Led Ophthalmology Service for the Hounslow community delivered at 3 convenient locations close in proximity to patients homes;
- A referral assessment triage process to direct patients to the most appropriate service setting;
- A service focused on delivering eye care in the community to reduce demand on local Hospital Eye Services;
- Waiting times for treatment of just 4 weeks.
The Practice Group have been at the forefront of Consultant Led Community Ophthalmology Services since 2006. We now provide services to over twenty CCG’s across the country. It is our aim to make life as simple as possible for referrers. We offer a well-rounded service, with a team of specialist triagers, a referrer helpline, a Referral Management Centre (RMC) and the facility to receive advice from an ophthalmologist on the same day. We can treat a wide range of conditions and once received, every referral is clinically triaged by an ophthalmologist and signposted to the most appropriate service for the needs of the patient.
