POSTPONED – SpaMedica Cataract Post-op Accreditation Evening | Birmingham | March

POSTPONED: Having monitored the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation carefully and listened to event stakeholders’ views and concerns over the last few days, SpaMedica has decided to postpone our Accreditation Evening, due to be held in SpaMedica Birmingham on Wednesday 18 March 2020.

We will publish an alternative date for the event as soon as this is agreed. All those booked to attend will have the opportunity for first refusal for the new date before we open the invitation to all.

SpaMedica Birmingham, Apex House, Calthorpe Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 1TR – Wednesday 18th March 2020

6.00pm – 9.00pm

You are invited to attend our SpaMedica Cataract Post-op Accreditation Evening in Birmingham on Wednesday 18th March 2020.

SpaMedica is currently the number one provider of cataract surgeries for NHS patients in the UK; performing more than 20,000 surgeries each year within our thirteen hospitals based across the North West, the Midlands, Yorkshire and the South East.

A key part of our cataract service is being able to offer our patients the opportunity to have their cataract post-operative assessment at their referring optician’s practice – 73% of our patients’ post-op assessments are booked in and managed by more than 1,500 accredited community optometrists.

The feedback we receive from our accredited partner optometrists is overwhelmingly positive and the main benefits of becoming accredited are:

  • Short waiting times for NHS patients:
    • 4 weeks from referral to cataract surgery – 2 weeks to pre-op assessment
  • Dedicated experts in the SpaMedica team supporting you with cataract and other ophthalmic queries
  • Patient helpline to answer patient queries directly about their referral and treatment
  • Positive and happy patients giving you increased customer loyalty
  • Additional revenue streams
    • for post-op assessment appointments
    • new prescription glasses for patients following surgery

Our accreditation evening runs from 6.00pm to 9.00pm and includes refreshments. SpaMedica is registered with the GOC as a CET provider and you will receive one CET point for attending our SpaMedica Cataract Post-op Accreditation session.

You will need to have been qualified for a minimum of one year to be eligible to become a SpaMedica Cataract Post-op Accreditation Partner.

If you are already accredited to our post-op scheme, then attending this session is not mandatory, but you are welcome to book a place for a refresher and receive one CET point.

If you would like to attend please contact us using our contact form.

Please note that the presentation will be a live audio stream.
