The COVID-19 pandemic has placed significant stresses and strains on our health care services and especially on departments that have a very high patient turnover such as the Eye (Ophthalmology) department. We are still facing a significant challenge due to the impact of Covid-19.
As a result of this, we are aware that there are many patients who are currently referred to us or on our waiting list who will experience a delay as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your patience in these unprecedented times.
We are currently re-establishing our services, but can only do this in line with the current guidelines for re-establishing eye (ophthalmic) clinical services and will not be at full capacity for some time. We will steadily expand both the range of services we offer and the sites we can offer them from in the upcoming months, but only where this can be done safely. Thanks once again for your patience.
