Calling Before You Come
Staff would like to remind members of the public needing emergency eye care to call the accident and emergency (A&E) department before attending.
The REI has a telephone assessment system, which is staffed by senior qualified Ophthalmic Nurse Practitioners who assess the patient, give advice and guidance and offer an appropriate appointment time either immediately, later the same day, within the week or directed to their GP, Optician or Pharmacist.
Sister Vicky Brotherton from the REI Accident and Emergency department said: “Anyone who needs help or advice with an emergency eye problem should telephone the department on 01752 439330.
• For accident and emergency advice on eye problems please telephone 01752 439330
• Patients with outpatient clinic enquiries should contact the REI Appointments team on:
