COVID-19 UPDATE and VIDEO APPOINTMENT
The NHS and private healthcare providers across the UK have come together to provide a unified response to the current COVID-19 pandemic. This collaboration has the full support of all clinicians and has meant the suspension of face-to-face private consultations and surgery for the immediate future.
We will be closely following the situation and following advice from the Government, The Royal College of Ophthalmologists, NHS leadership and Regulatory bodies, private healthcare providers, and others. We strongly recommend that patients follow the latest advice on staying safe that is issued by the UK Government and the NHS by clicking here.
Professor Muhtaseb would like to assure existing patients that he remains available to support you with your ongoing care and any surgical follow-up queries.
In addition, we continue to welcome new enquiries and are able to offer video appointments ahead of meeting you in person when the opportunity arises.
Video appointments are available for all patients. For new patients enquiring about surgical treatment, such as cataract or refractive lens exchange, the video appointment is an opportunity to reserve your place for surgery when service resumes. This can help to avoid longer waits that may occur if enquiries are commenced only when surgical services are re-instated.
Following the video appointment, a further in-person consultation will be required to complete the eye examination and finalise a plan of management. All preliminary plans made during a video appointment require final confirmation at the face-to-face consultation that will take place when normal services are re-instated.
To arrange your video appointment contact us on 073 80 80 2000 or click here.
In the meantime, stay safe, stay well, and take care of each other
With personal best wishes
Professor Mohammed Muhtaseb
Patients will form queues for post-COVID cataract surgery. You can make progress towards clear vision (and beat the queue for surgery) by having your first appointment from the safety of your home
Meet online with our surgeon, Prof Muhtaseb, and get a clear answer about all of your cataract surgery options (including the little known possibility of fixing your reading and/or distance vision at the same as you fix your cataracts). Critically, after your video appointment, you will have the opportunity to secure your spot in the waiting list once our clinic re-opens. Click the button below now to book your video consultation…
