Eye casualty:

To help to keep our patients and staff safe we are changing the way we operate our eye casualty service. The service will no longer operate as a walk-in service. Instead patients will need to contact us by phone before coming to the hospital. This means our team can provide support and medical advice over the phone without patients needing to come to hospital. If you do need to come to the hospital for medical help the team will arrange this with you.Please contact the service on 01604 545085 or 01604 634700 ext 8011

Eye casualty services are available:

Monday- Saturday 8.30am- 4.30pm

Sundays and Bank Holidays- 9.00am- 12.30pm.

Eye clinics: Vary in time between Mon – Fri 8.30am – 5.00pm

If you need urgent help outside of these hours please go to the Accident and Emergency department.
