Opening of Brent Community Ophthalmology Service

 

A new service launched this week that will see more patients with eye conditions treated in community settings.

Brent Community Ophthalmology Service opened yesterday (September 22) and will provide community-based, consultant-led outpatient services for patients with ophthalmic conditions such as blurred vision, watery eyes, retinal lesions and visual field defects.

The service will deliver care from two community sites in Brent – Sudbury Primary Care Centre and Willesden Centre for Health & Care – and will offer extended opening hours, on-site admin support for rapid documentation turnaround and a discharge summary containing management advice for GPs and patients.
