Wirral Community Ophthalmolgy Scheme
The Community Ophthalmology Service is the first of its kind in the UK, run by the NHS and highly trained optometrists (who have been accredited by local consultants). It provides treatment for many common eye conditions, often on the same day. It is available in more than 20 opticians across Wirral, so that you can be treated near where you live or work, rather than in hospital. For more serious or long-term conditions there is also a consultant led clinic at St George’s Medical Centre, where you can be seen by a specialist eye doctor. You must be referred by your GP or Optician.
