On 4th February 2019 at Milton Keynes Hospital, Dr Suri Dhanoa and others will be presenting a referrals update. This event is approved for 1 interactive CET point each for optometrists (ocular disease, standards of practice) and dispensing opticians (ocular abnormalities, standards of practice).

Dr Dhanoa will talk about making appropriate clinical referrals, with examples including cataract, urgent and wet AMD referrals. Stephen Nall and John Wingfield from MK CCG will be there to answer your questions about all aspects of referrals through the Referral Management System, and the relaunched Cataract Accreditation Referral Scheme.
