SpaMedica works in partnership with thousands of optometrists to deliver excellent care and support to each of our patients. We have a proven track record as a specialist provider of ophthalmology services providing NHS ophthalmology services as well as for private patients. We are currently the largest NHS cataract surgery provider in the UK, performing more than 30,000 surgeries per year.
We are dedicated to drastically reducing waiting times for patients by working together with community optometrists enrolled in our cataract post-operative accreditation scheme. By working together we can provide great eye care and ultimately improve our patients’ quality of life.
We have more than 2,000 optometrists working with us within our ‘SpaMedica Accredited Partner Programme’ for cataract treatment, with 71% of post-op assessments conducted by our community optometrist partners. A major benefit of our programme is the sharing of patient outcomes and feedback, which reflect the high standard of care and support we are delivering together. SpaMedica is registered with the General Optical Council (GOC) as a CET provider and you will receive one CET point for attending a SpaMedica Cataract Post-op Accreditation session.
We are also dedicated to providing expert advice and support to community optometrists on cataracts, YAG capsulotomy and AMD. Please contact us to discuss any queries you may have on symptoms, treatments, surgery and/or the referral process.
