This is an unprecedented time for us all and we wish you and your families the very best of health through this challenging period. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions during this time – our contact centre and teams are available 24/7 to support our patients and community optometrists. Please see below for the latest update regarding our services:
We have received advice from Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS Improvement and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists with regards to providing Ophthalmology services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This advice is to only perform Day Case surgery for urgent cases where there is a risk of sight loss or risk of ocular damage.
SpaMedica will continue to treat sight threatening conditions by performing Vitreo-retinal surgery and continue to perform wet AMD treatment during this period of time until we receive any further updates from NHS England. We will also, during this time, be supporting local trusts with their capacity demands, where required.
We will communicate any further changes as they arise.
Please contact us on 0330 058 4280 if you have any queries about referrals, your treatment and current patient pathways.
