Service Updates

There have been key changes made to several of our departments.
These include: 

Eye Emergencies

Please be advised that the process for eye emergencies has changed. Instead of attending hospital straight away, please call our specialised telephone number: 02476 964800 which is available on Mondays and Fridays, 9.00am to 1.00pm and 1.30pm to 7.00pm and on Saturdays 9.00am to midday. 

You will be spoken to by an expert clinican who will give you specialist advice on the next steps to take. 

In the event of this being out of hours and an emergency, please attend the Emergency Department. 

Please only attend the Eye Outpatient department if you have phoned in advance and have been advised to attend.
