Primary Eyecare 

Guidance for TeleMedicine call (Download)

Due to an expected increase in the inability for hospital providers and primary care optical practice being able to deliver face to face consultations with patients, there has been a need for Primary Eyecare Services to work closely with CCGs to implement an ability to assess patients within commissioned First Contact Services (e.g. MECS) via telemedicine (telephone or video consultations). Please use the document download above as guidance and triage form for these consolations.
