Referral methods: e-Referrals
Open Monday–Friday 9am-4pm and Saturday–Sunday 10am-3pm. Out of these hours the on call is off site.
Emergencies are seen in Clinic 3 on the first floor.
Walk-ins to the clinic are not available and patients wishing to be seen must be referred after discussion with the Ophthalmologist on call. They can be contacted via the switch board.
If the patient needs to be seen within 24–48 hours: the emergency eye doctor should be bleeped – GPs should call 020 7794 0500 extension 33625 or bleep 1758. This can be done via the switchboard.
After this a referral document can be emailed to email@example.com
If the patient needs to be seen within 2–4 weeks please send a referral letter via the e-Referral system.
If you are not sure if it is urgent or emergency please contact the emergency eye doctor and discuss.
If out of clinic hours patients with emergencies can self refer and are seen in the main accident and emergency where they are triaged and assessed by a general physician and then the case discussed with the Ophthalmologist who is on call.
